We base many of our events around the festivities conducted in Marietta and Cobb County. There is no parade, nor a formal Ceremony in Marietta this year. We will not have a meal at the post. We will resume participation in the parade, and will serve a meal, on Independence Day weekend. Until then, here are the events we have this Memorial Day Weekend.
I would like to invite you and your Family to join us at the Mars Hill Cemetery on Sunday May 30th at 10am, to pay our respects at the gravesite of Sgt. Horace Orr, for a ceremony to Honor our Post namesake.
We have been doing this every year, with the exception of last year. I invite you to bring your kids , grandkids the whole Family and Friends! It will be a brief event, but certainly a meaningful one. Hope to see as many of you there as possible! Thanks in advance for your support, Sgt. Orr deserves it!
We will conduct our own brief Memorial Day Celebration on Monday May 31st.
It will take place at 11am in the upper parking lot. Please take a few minutes and come join us to Honor our Great County and all the Veterans who so willingly served for us!
Please jump in the car and bring your family and spend a few minutes to help us pay our respect on this awesome Day!
Thank you in advance for your support!
