We have finally arrived at the week that many of us have been waiting for. We received word today that the truck delivering the wreaths will be here on Thursday. We understand many have work and other commitments during the week, however, we are at the mercy of the truck company.
This is a dynamic event, starting with a truck escort for motorcycle riders at the Bojangles at 3770 Martin Luther King Jr, New Bern (by the new Harris Teeter) at 0845. New Bern Police, Craven County Sheriff’s Office, and New Bern Fire Dept along with volunteer motorcycle riders will escort the truck to the cemetery. If you would like to take pictures of the escort, Dairy Queen is a good spot and the main Fire Station is a great spot as they will have he ladder truck set up with the huge American Flag.
Those not participating in the escort are asked to arrive at the cemetery at 0930 to assist with unloading the truck.
There will still be plenty of volunteer opportunities on Saturday morning starting at 0800.
Any questions or concerns, please contact me at 252-529-9119.
