FESTIVE EVENTS


GATHERING OF EAGLES

May 27, 2017

Piedmont Crossing, Thomasville
(must have a ticket to attend)

With an average of 1,300 World War II veterans dying each day, the North Carolina Memorial Day Parade & Ceremony wants to take this year to honor these brave men and woman — people we refer to as “Eagles” — those who still carry the memories of WWII, from the shores of Normandy to the Pacific conflicts. That’s why we are hosting a “Gathering of Eagles” reception at Richard Childress Racing Auditorium. Our friends at Hospice of Forsyth County which host Veterans Coffees across the state will also be present.

Doors will open at 6 p.m. Food will be served at 7 p.m.

We invite World War II, Korean Conflict, Vietnam and more recent war veterans in North Carolina to attend this function.

To RSVP, contact Caron Myers 336-225-3147 or email at caronmyers@yahoo.com by May 20th.
