Fast Cars & Freedom

If you think we’re going to sing a Rascal Flatts song here, you’re in the wrong place.

A bunch of fast cars will be making consistent left hand turns for a couple hours in Indiana on Sunday.

But there’s more than that going on this weekend.

There will be grills firing up and the power of propane will help prepare the perfect piece of meat.

But there’s more than that going on this weekend.

This one-extra-day, forecast-looks-sketchy, let’s-kick-off-summer weekend is Memorial Day weekend, America’s most somber holiday.

Memorial Day is about honoring men and women who died while serving in the U.S. Military. This weekend we honor and remember those who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom, our country and the lives we’re fortunate to live every day.

The people we remember on Memorial Day weekend
wrote a blank check made payable to
“The United States of America”
for an amount of
“up to, and including his/her life.”
And the check was cashed.

This weekend we encourage you to join us in taking time to reflect upon the meaning of Memorial Day and the many freedoms we have as Americans because of those who died in war.

Won’t you join us?

Following Memorial Day, we begin preparations for the 2021 Fueling Freedom event which will take place this year on Friday, June 25th from noon to 5 p.m. 2021 marks the 13th anniversary for Fueling Freedom. 39 CountryMark fueling stations are participating in this year’s fundraising activity. Co-Alliance stations participating include Lebanon, Monrovia, Greentown, Swayzee, Greenfield Farm Store, Richmond on NW 5th St. and Oxford, OH.

For every gallon of fuel pumped during the event, CountryMark and Co-Alliance will donate 50 cents to the local National Guard Family Readiness Group. More than 20 National Guard FRGs will benefit from Fueling Freedom in 2021. 100% of the proceeds from Fueling Freedom will go to support local National Guard Family Readiness Groups. 

Plan to fuel up on Friday June 25th! More details to follow.
