Maritime Memorial Day will be held at 12:00 Noon on board the Yorktown at Patriots Point on November 2nd.
This is a ceremony to honor all of the individuals who have helped to make the Charleston Waterfront Community what it is today. A caring group of individuals who continue work hard, care for their families and grease the wheels of commerce throughout the state of South Carolina as well as much of the United States.
Please email me a list of all of your organizations members who have passed away since October 1 of last year. If you can also provide an address we will try to notify the families of the service also.
Please plan to attend and have someone from your organization attend.
Lists of names should be sent to: email@example.com
For urgent answers to any questions call me at 843 442 1363.
