One of the retirement communities in our new VRC (Veteran Retirement Community) Outreach Program, Gaines Park on Old Highway 41, is holding a cool car event on September 29. The car needn’t be a “classic”, just a cool car. If anybody has a car they’d like to show off, they can email Roy Lantz firstname.lastname@example.org, for more info.
The 99th anniversary of the founding of Horace Orr Post 29, Inc. is this Saturday, September 29, 2018.
Members may join us in the Social Quarters for some birthday cake at 2PM.
Thanks for your interest. We have numerous people interested in volunteering for this event. See below for more details.
The Clay Shoot is Friday October 5th. The location is Barnsely Gardens Resort in Adairsville, GA. It is about a 45 minute drive from Marietta. The program begins at 8AM and will last until lunchtime or a bit later. If you stay until the end (not required), you’ll likely be back in Marietta between 3PM and 4PM.
What we need: Volunteers to operate Clay Target stations. No experience is necessary, we can teach you what to do in about 10 minutes. The target stations are remote operated. Volunteers will simply push buttons and help the shooters keep score. We will provide all volunteers with hearing protection, eye protection, breakfast, snacks, and lunch. You may wish to bring a portable chair if you get uncomfortable standing for long periods. Volunteers should dress in casual clothes (jeans, shorts, comfortable shoes).
Once we get confirmations of those who plan to attend, we will help coordinate car pooling from Post 29.
