COVID 19  and Our Memorial Day Reading:

Because they are still there, we will be here to remember.

One more time because of the COVID 19 pandemic we are making some technical changes to our Memorial Day reading set up so as to maintain social distance recommendations.

  • use of a base drum with a foot pedal
  • readers will be required to wear a mask 
  • microphone will be cleaned in between each reader
  • there will be NO common shared food/snack/beverage table
  • all volunteers and visitors are expected to observe the social distance guidelines of at least 6 feet of separation (unless members of same household)
