War Memorial Post #30 Invites Veterans & Public for Ceremonies

By Jeff Sukeforth | Nov 06, 2017
War Memorial Post 30 will be involved with two events on November 11th, Veterans Day, and would like to invite all Veterans and the public to join them to recognize fellow Veterans who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedoms.

 

The first event will be held at the Village Green War Memorial from 1130am to noon. The post Color Guard will march in from Chestnut Street and stop in front of the memorial where they will observe 30 minutes of silence in memory of all Veterans. At noon time the color guard will march out of the green and down Main Street to Chestnut Street where the color guard will complete its mission. Legion members will be on hand to hand out flags to anyone who might like one.

 

The second event will be held at the Legion Post located at 91 Pearl Street in Camden from 2pm to 4pm.  This is the re-commitment of the post to the community and to celebrate these Veterans Day event. 
The post had to discontinue this event a few years ago due to severe water damage to the post. According to Jeff Sukeforth/Post Adjutant, the post is ready and looks forward to presenting a wonderful program to Veterans and the public alike.

 

Rosey Gerry/Past Post 30 Commander, has put together a musical program of military music from 1775 to the present and hopes everyone will join in with signing the various marches and songs. There will also be readings of Military importance during the event.

 

The post will be open from 1pm on for anyone who might want to stop by and see just what the refurbishment projects entailed and to enjoy many wonderful snacks.

 

Jeff wants all Veterans from all eras to know they are encouraged to attend and wear a hat of their service to be recognized. The Public is also encouraged to bring along a photo of a family member or friend during their service time to share their stories.

 

If you would like more information on either of these programs or the American Legion in general please call Jeff @ 691-2270. Come on over to your community American Legion Post and share with us on this day of remembrance.
