Dear Gold Star Mothers, parents, families, friends, & veterans,
Please accept this humble invitation to attend the Gold Star Mothers (Families) Day Ceremony. Feel free to pass this information since we don't have all the Gold Star families contact information from the Texas Coastal Bend. We have a great list but not all, we need your help to contact them and let them know about the ceremony.
With warm regards,
The Gold Star Mothers Day Ceremony will be held on Saturday, October 1, 2011 at 10:00 a.m. at Sherrill Park. The ceremony will remember and recognize our families who have lost their sons/daughters in the field of battle. The Veterans Band of Corpus Christi will host the ceremony and the Corpus Christi Mayor’s Committee for Veterans Affairs will sponsor the event.
Our flag will be folded once again in honor of those Gold Star Sons/Daughter kill in the field of battle. The response has been good from Vietnam, Gulf War, Iraq, Afghanistan, Gold Star Mothers, families, and wives, and the USS Cole will be attending. Guest Speaker will be Lt. Col. Marvin Kellem, US Army Distribution Corpus Christi Army Depot at NAS & Lt. Stephen L. Warne, US Navy Chaplain at Corpus Christi Naval Air Station will give the invocation and benediction. The Veterans Band will provide the music.
Reception will follow after the ceremony at the Veterans Band House at Heritage Park 1517 Mesquite.
