Well this is indeed a year for firsts for a lot of us and includes a lot of missed events we all enjoy all because of this nasty covid. This includes the American Legion here in Camden.
Unfortunately here is another negative to put on the list; War Memorial Post 30, American Legion will not be holding its annual Veterans Day gathering at the post. We just can't do it with the current restrictions on gatherings set forth from Augusta.
We apologize to our faithful community members who always joins us at the post for some great music, readings and recognition of our Veterans.
However, Post 30 will be doing its silent vigil at the War Memorial on the Village Green on Veterans Day. The Post members will be assembling at the green at 1130am and will take up their places by the memorial and stand silently until the church bells chime 12 O'clock. There may not be a lot of things we can do but this is too important not to conduct and we are asking any member of the public to join us too. If the weather does not cooperate and it rains this too will be cancelled due to the health of our Veterans.
We will also be assembling at Mt View Cemetery on Monday November 16th at 10am to retrieve all the flags from the markers. We will gather them all, hold onto them and in the Spring hold a proper flag disposal ceremony. Come by and join us for this if you wish to.
Call Jeff at 236-3310 for more info on these events.
