June 25th Washington, D C Trip

It was announced at the February 11th meeting, that on that day, June 25th, members, spouses and significant others of Chapter 313 would have the opportunity to travel to Washington, D.C. for the 70th Anniversary ceremony of the starting of the war in Korea.  Mark your calendars and plan to make this trip.  The Bus provided by the South Korea Embassy, would leave Tasker Road and Rt 522 Walmart at 0730 for a 1000 – 1100 ceremony.  After the ceremony, we would stop on the way back at the Gainesville Mission BBQ for lunch.

 

Should be back in Winchester around 1400.  Sign-up sheets will be at the next several meetings, but if you can’t make the meetings to sign-up, contact me either by phone at 540-837-2657 or by email declark193@gmail.com.  Let’s do our best to have a good turn-out for this event. 

David Clark, Commander
