NOTE: MAY 14, 2016 was our 4th Annual Gold Star Mothers & Families Motorcade. Started at 12 Noon @ Comedy Works Parking Lot (Northern Blvd. (Henry Johnson Blvd.), opp. Memorial Hospital). The route is on Route 9, past Siena College - a 4 mile trip. It was very successful!
"Please Remember Me" had one project.....to honor & remember those veterans that made the supreme sacrifice for our freedom. We know that freedom is never free. They will not be forgotten.
The COMMUNTIY, was present on 5/7/13, for the Blessing of the 120+ Flags; and on 5/18/13, at the FIRST Annual Gold Star Family Motorcade Procession.
