WARRIOR BEACH RETREAT “FLAGS ON THE BRIDGE”
This Thursday afternoon, May 18th, wounded Soldiers, Sailors, and Airmen and their families will motorcade throughout our community on their way to the opening ceremonies at Arnold High School for the Spring Warrior Beach Retreat.
We need as many “patriots” of all ages, sizes, and shapes to meet at either end of the Hathaway Bridge, your choice, to welcome them as they pass by. Soldiers’ Angels will have American Flags of all sizes for you to use to welcome our “troops” as they caravan by. You need to be in position at the bridge by 4pm to be sure we are there when they pass by at about 4:15pm. Everyone is welcome to join in this grand welcoming celebration.
Parking for the college side of the bridge will be at the No Name Lounge (thanks, No Name) as construction has changed things on that end. Just before you reach the beach side of the bridge, pull off to the right into the boat landing parking area.
The Warriors will actually cross the bridge a second time after driving through Panama City on their way to the 7pm opening ceremonies at Arnold High which begin at 7pm. Admission is there free.
Let’s be sure we let them know how very much we appreciate their service and sacrifice.
For more information, call Soldiers’ Angels at 850-774.
