Veterans & Family Memorial Care Sponsors Remember 9/11 Patriot Walk
To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of 9/11 and Patriot Day, Veterans & Family Memorial Care Providers nationwide are sponsoring a Remember 9/11 Memorial Walk to honor those who lost their lives on that fateful day as well as the brave heroes who defend and protect our great nation. Nearly 1000 family owned funeral homes across all 50 states will participate in the event at 4:00pm on Sunday, Sept 11th, 2011. The entire community is invited to take the one mile Patriot Walk which begins and ends on the lawn of the funeral home. Opening ceremonies will incorporate a Flag Ceremony performed by a local Veterans Service post or Boy Scout troop, the playing/singing of the National Anthem by a High School band or local talent and an opening address from a Fire Chiel or Police Commander. Baked goods and refreshments will be supplied by local ladies auxillary groups. The VFMC home office provides the press release, newspaper ads, flyers, lawn banners and marketing materials to all of the VFMC Providers.
Throughout the year Veterans & Family Memorial Providers participate in the VFMC signature community outreach programs and strategic partnerships. They serve as a catalyst for their communities to honor and support our nation’s heroes which include veterans and active duty military. These initiatives include: Christmas Stockings for Soldiers, Operation Sweaters for Veterans, Operation Valentine and the annual VFMC Memorial Day Balloon Release. In addition VFMC is a proud national sponsor and strategic partner of non-profits Cell Phones for Soldiers and Wreaths Across America.
