We need to be at the cemetery promptly @ 8:50 AM for a very short briefing.

  • We would like to get an accurate head count at the cemetery, immediately following the flags placement, for a group breakfast/lunch at Waller’s Restaurant.  I will try & get a “guestimate reservation” beforehand, & confirm with a better # before we depart the cemetery.  I realize you may not know right now, since we’ll see how long the placing of the flags takes (usually 1.5 hrs).   If when replying, you know you can attend our get-together at Waller’s, please indicate so in your RSVP.
