HHFA MD5 – Wreaths Across America Crownsville Veterans Cem
December 16, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 2:30 pm
PLEASE NOTE CHANGES:
We will meet at the DoubleT Diner at West Street and Solomon’s Island Road at 8 AM, on Saturday December 16th, and share breakfast together, We will have KSU at 9:30AM and ride to the Cemetery together.
The wreaths will be delivered on Friday, so we wont be providing an escorting. Instead, we have been asked to help run the parking. They are expecting 4,000 people, and there are 1/4 that number of parking spots. They would like us to be at the Veteran’s Cemetery at 10 am. Please bring a bright safety vest if you have one, a flag, and warm work gloves. Wear layers!
It will be 35 degrees that morning, and I will definitely be riding. Cars are welcome. We will be running the parking from 10:30 until 12. The ceremony starts at 12. We will put wreaths on gravesites immediately following the ceremony. We should be done by 2:00 or 2:30 PM.
There will be an impressive service before the wreaths are put out, I don’t think anyone should miss this! If you have any questions, my cell number is 202-320-9700. Hope to see everyone there!
Also please put our MD5 holiday pot luck party on your calendar for Monday night December 18th at 7 pm, at the American Legion on Crownsville Rd. Please RSVP on Meetup for that, and see more details on what to bring!
