Closed to recognize Memorial Day on May 27th 2013

Beveland Coffee Recognizes Memorial DayAs you undoubtedly know, the last Monday in May is the day we, in the United States of America, pause for Memorial Day (formerly Decoration Day); a day to recognize the more than 1.3 million men and women who have died while serving in the United States military.

Like many other area businesses, we will be closed on Monday, May 27th, 2013. During this day of remembrance, there are many local places to visit to pay homage to our fallen soldiers.
