Bataan Corregidor Bridge Dedication Saturday Dec. 7

posted Dec 4, 2013, 8:03 PM by Dan Carr
WHERE: Route 185 bridge (near Abigail's).  Meet in the area near the Pinchot Sycamore on Route 185.

Meet at 1:45.  Ceremony starts at 2:00.

WHAT: The state legislature just designated the bridge as the "Bataan Corregidor Memorial Bridge".  State Senator Kevin Witkos specifically asked us to attend and play a role in the ceremony.  The troop has always been a strong supporter of veterans and others who serve our country.  You might remember going to a ceremony at the library last year commemorating the "Bataan Death March" from World War II.  And the Ventures just completed the books commemorating Simsbury's fallen soldiers that we presented on Veteran's Day.

WHO: All of us!  We need as many scouts and adult leaders as possible.  PL's, call your patrol members to talk this up.

WEAR: Your Class A uniform.  Wear layers underneath and bring a coat, hat, and gloves.

Contact Justin for more information.
