Dedication of the American Legion Monument
September 10, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
This is a cordial and open invitation for all to attend the dedication ceremony of an American Legion Monument at the Jacksonville National Cemetery on September 10, 2016. The 5th District American Legion family raised donations for this beautiful monument over the past two years and we will have a short dedication ceremony at the cemetery starting at 10 AM. We have guest speakers, including the cemetery Director and Past National Commander Clarence Hill, patriotic songs by a church choir, and the laying of a wreath at the monument by Department leadership, followed by a social reception at American Legion Post 283 in Jacksonville. We will have chairs at the ceremony but suggest you may want to bring along a folding chair if the crowd is large. For further information please contact Tom Gora, Chairman of the 5th District JNC Monument Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org or 904-583-4597.
