A follow up to my announcement at the last Senior
Just a note to remind you that there will be a Parade of Wreaths
Celebration at Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst on Thursday, May 27, 2010 at
10:30 AM. (That's the Thursday BEFORE Memorial Day.)
I will have my Honda Odyssey that will accommodate me and 5 others. We
will meet in the parking lot in front of the Barnes & Noble store
on Nixon Drive in the Eastgate Shopping Center at 9:00AM. Young folks are
I have to notify the base who will be attending. Please pass
this message along to any interested parties and get back to me on who will
participate. I will need the following information by Friday, May
21st. (I must submit this data to the Security Police. They do a
minor security check before allowing people on the base. The gate guard will
have a roster with the names of people in our group at the Gate when
we enter the base.)
1. First, Middle, and Last Name.
2. Drivers license number & state of residence -- or --
Date of Birth.
The Parade of Wreaths Celebration begins at 10:30 AM. We should plan on
arriving about 10:00 AM. We will park in the VIP lot and have assigned seats.
Following the ceremony there will be a reception hosted by Colonel Gina Grosso,
Commander of the 87th Air Base Wing. Light refreshments will be
served. After the reception I am working on a tour of the C-141 airlifter
now on display at Starlifter Memorial Park. We can get lunch at the All Ranks
Club before we head home.
Please call me if you have any questions. H- 856-235-5571;
