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.

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.
