Happy May Granite City!

Did you know that the month of May was named for the Greek goddess Maia?  We bet you didn't know
no other month begins on the same day of the week as May!  And May's birthstone is the emerald!
This month is a busy one starting with May Day on the first, which also is the day we all got to watch
the Kentucky Derby!  The second jewel in the Triple Crown of horse racing is The Preakness which follows two
weeks later.  And of course May is the month for Mother's Day, Memorial Day and the first full month of
Cardinal Baseball!  Check below for all of the activities that are going on in our fine home town...

It's May in Granite City!
