5/30/17 WILMIGTON’S MEMORIAL DAY PARADE, Wilmington, DE

5/30/17 Wilmigton’s Memorial Day Parade

 

AHW-DE has been invited to once again take part in the Wilmington’s Memorial Day Parade and we will do just that……..here is our invitation from the chairman Thomas Kenney:

On behalf of Wilmington’s Memorial Day Committee, I would like to invite you and your organization to march in Wilmington’s 2017 Memorial Day parade.

This year marks the 150th consecutive observance of the traditional Memorial Day, May 30, in Wilmington.

The tradition began in 1868, when a group of New Castle County citizens formed a Memorial Day Committee, to honor those who died in the Civil War.

We feel it is important, as we know you do, to pass on the tradition of honoring those who have given their lives for our country.

The parade lines up 5:15 p.m., steps off at 6:00 p.m., May 30, on Delaware Ave. at Woodlawn Ave.. Participants march east down Delaware Avenue to the Civil War Monument at Broom St., where we honor the dead of all wars with a memorial service.

Your participation in our parade will be a tribute to those who have died for our country. For your convenience, our participation form follows.

Please join us

Welcome Home, Thank you for your service.

Looking for members in the Virginia Beach area to assist with Welcome Home

 

A Hero’s Welcome,

We  have received a  welcome home request from a husband of a Sailor in Virginia Beach, VA who recently returned from her 3rd deployment!  She has spent many months away from her children and her hubby wanted to do something special for his wife when she returned home.  We have not been able to properly plan a welcome home since currently have no chapter in the Virginia Beach area but…that doesn’t mean it won’t still happen!!!

If you know of anyone in the Virginia Beach area that would be interested in helping us plan a welcome home for this Sailor, please contact me.

Our Hero is already home so this will be an easy mission to plan…

For the Troops,

Maria  Hyland

A Hero’s Welcome
