DATE EVENT TIME
22 Sept Support for Veteran Dennis Ames as requested by his family: The family has been in touch with Larry Oppel and it looks like there will be a formal military service for Dennis. We have been requested to attend this service. IN THE EVENT THE MILITARY DOES NOT PLAN TO ATTEND TO GIVE A FORMAL PRESENTATION, then the Veterans of Post 1776 and Chester American Legion Post 342 will do a military-type service. Larry Oppel will guide our participation. I am sure we will do whatever will be required to make this service meaningful, so please plan to attend whether it is a formal military presentation or we do it. The service will take place on Sunday, September 22 at Ashton Farms which is located at 417 County Road 513 (West Mill Road) at 2:30 PM. The farm is located on the left side of 513 just past Middle Valley.

**********************************************

2:30 PM
4 Oct 2:00 PM in West Morris Central auditorium – A school-wide assembly featuring the school choir, presentation of the colors (American Legion Post 342 and Washington Township Veterans Association Post 1776), and special guest speakers will honor Cpl. Smith. All Veterans should arrive at the school at 1:30 PM in uniform.

5:00 PM in West Morris Central library – A dinner with West Morris Regional board members, West Morris Central administration, Washington Township Mayor Matt Murello, and Cpl. Jamie Smith’s family members. We as Veterans have been invited to this dinner. Once again we should be in uniform.

6:45 PM at the West Morris Central football field – A pre-game ceremony with the presentation of the colors and a proclamation by Washington Township Mayor Matt Murello. I am assuming that the Veterans attending the dinner will just go directly to the field, but if you are not going to the dinner and want to go to the football field you should arrive at 6:30 PM.
