How to Celebrate Memorial Day

Memorial Day is almost upon us, but some people don’t know how to celebrate this day properly. Rex Perry Hyundai is here to help, so here are a few things you can do to truly celebrate the spirit that is Memorial Day.

Visit Cemeteries

One thing that a lot of people do, especially veterans, is going to cemeteries or memorials and cleaning up the graves of fallen soldiers. Whether it’s wiping down the stone or pulling some weeds, all of it is impactful. And before you leave, placing flowers or flags is a good way to say thanks as well.

Attend a Parade

Most towns have some sort of event or parade celebrating those fallen veterans and usually conclude with some sort of memorial service. Taking time out of your day and attending these events show your support to those brave soldiers.

Participate in the National Moment of Remembrance

Established by Congress, the National Moment of Remembrance happens at 3p, local time, on Memorial Day to pause and reflect on those lost and national unity. It is also a notable time for Taps to be played.

Talk to Your Kids About Memorial Day

Taking the time and sitting and talking with your kids about what Memorial Day is can be important so they understand what the celebration and remembrance are all about. Grabbing a kids’ book like The Wall or Memorial Day Suprise also helps them understand as well through stories.

No matter what you plan on doing, doing something is a great start. Let us all remember those lives lost and the fallen heroes this Memorial Day. Stop by Rex Perry Hyundai and let us know how you will be celebrating Memorial Day this year!

Hyundai Adds New Ioniq Hybrid To Lineup

The Hyundai Ioniq has always been an EV, with the only true hybrid in the brand’s lineup being a variant of the popular Sonata. However, Hyundai is changing this for the 2017 model year. The new 58-mpg Ioniq Hybrid is being added to the new model variants for the EV, including the pure EV version and also a new Ioniq plug-in hybrid, with the option to drive in both hybrid and EV mode. This move will give Hyundai customers and compact car fans more options when it comes to the green car segment.

The new Ioniq Hybrid has actually already arrived at dealerships across the country, including ours at Rex Perry Hyundai. If you’re interested in the EV model, that one’s only available onsite in California, but you can get your hands on it by special order. The Plug-In Hybrid, however, will not be making its way to the public until later this year when it launches as a 2018 model year.

The new Ioniq Hybrid was engineered to deliver a smooth and fun driving experience purposefully by the team at Hyundai, who wanted to create a hybrid that did more than just save on gas. The Plug-In Hybrid model’s driving modes will even include a “Sport” option for drivers looking for something with a little more spirited ride. So, make sure you stop by Rex Perry Hyundai to check out the new Ioniq Hybrid.
