Memorial Day Event, Chestertown, 28 May

National Thread

We have been invited once again by The Frank M. Jarman American Legion Post # 36 in Chestertown, MD to a special Memorial Day service and parade in Chestertown, MD on Monday May 28, 2012. The MD PG will stand in a flag line to honor fallen heroes at the Chestertown Cemetery.
This year the post will be honoring a past veteran who has served his country with honor. We will honor this hero by standing a flag line during the service recounting the hero’s accomplishments. After we complete the cemetery honors, the MD PG has also been invited to participate in the Chestertown parade and short ceremony and veteran recognition near the town center.

I will be hosting a preliminary rally point at the Osprey at the corner of MD 50 and MD 213 at Wye Mills, MD. We will leave this point and proceed on MD 213 to the final rally point at the Royal Farms at the corner of MD 213 and MD 544. Anyone wishing to fall in line on the way will be welcome to do so. This distance is approximately 21 miles.

From the final rally point at the Royal Farms at MD 544 and MD 213, we will all ride to the Chestertown Cemetery and set the flag line. This distance is approximately 3 miles.

The parade following the cemetery ceremony is completely voluntary. (Approximately 1 mile). Those who do not wish to participate in the parade may leave following the cemetery honors.

This event is open to all who wish to honor our veterans and those who sacrificed for our country. Come on iron horses or in cages - all will be welcome. 3' / 5' flags will be needed for the flag line. If you are going to participate in the parade - safely mounted large flags are welcome, or decorate your steed anyway you wish - as long as it's safe.
Food and gas are available at both rally points.
This event will be conducted on Memorial Day Monday 28 May, 2012.
