This weekend is the last Saturday before Memorial Day, when we Honor Our Fallen. We would like to invite any and all available to help us clean up, mow, weed wack, hedge trim, blow, and rake our Post adopted Cemetery. As appropriately stated by Bill, “We owe it to The Veterans interned there to make sure families can visit their loved ones who made the ultimate sacrifice!”
If anybody can make it, please contact Jeff Garland so that we can get an accurate count as to who may or may not be able to assist. We surely would appreciate the help.
Shiloh Cemetery is located at the intersection of Barrett Pkwy and Dallas Hwy. SEE BELOW
This should get you there. The cemetery is behind the Subway/Dunkin Donuts on Dallas Highway, right at the corner of Hwy 120 and Barrett Pkwy. The gate to the cemetery is between the Shell Station on the corner and the Subway which is in the strip center right next door.
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.
