HOTH - Kent Island HS Veterans & 1st Responder Appreciation Night, Stevensville, MD 9 Sep 16
 
The MDPG has been invited, for the fifth year, to escort and present colors at Kent Island High School's home football game on Friday Sep. 9, 2016.  Each year the school honors our wounded Warriors, Military and Veterans and all First Responders at this game.  These honors are always scheduled to take place on the game day closest to Sept. 11 to remind the community that freedom is not free.  Our participation is important to the community here.  It involves some precision riding on the track prior to the start of the game and a motorized flag line during the opening ceremonies.  In the years past this has been a fulfilling and fun event.  All are encouraged to attend.  We are hoping for a minimum of 8 riders.  If you have a 3'/5' flag mounted on your steed you will get priority.  If you do not have a mounted flag you are still, most welcome and encouraged to attend.
