VVA and AVVA members.

We are doing our best to come out of the Covid 19 years and hoping to return to the glory of our chapter’s history. This is what has always been our busy season and we miss the good ole days.

 

We will be participating in the Memorial Day activities at the Eternal Valley Cemetery on the 30th. We will need members to carry branch flags, man our refreshment table, and be involved in the flag placement in the days before the 30th.  The march in and out is about 150 feet each way.  Many of our usual volunteers are running at half speed or even less with sprains, strains, fractures, surgeries and all that jazz. Volunteer now and send me your availability so I can share it with the board and event coordinators. TIME IS OF THE ESSENCE AS THIS IS 2 WEEKS AWAY.

We will also be involved in the Fourth of July parade again in Santa Clarita. If we have enough volunteers to carry flags around the same parade route, we will have the marchers. We’re trying to figure out a simpler way to create a senior friendly float and are looking for vehicles. We will skip the hay bales because of the extra difficulty in borrowing them and the weight of the bales that increase as our physical strength decreases. The chapter has plenty of folding chairs to make us comfortable. We will need to be ready at the parade route start early to get parking and to lightly decorate our rolling stock. Please make sure that you wear something comfortable, in layers that can be adapted to the heat of the day. We’ll have water, etc. but YOU BRING THE SUNSCREEN, HATS AND APPROPRIATE SUN PROTECTION FOR YOUR OWN HEALTH CIRCUMSTANCES.

 

LET US KNOW IF YOU WILL BE AVAILABLE AND WILLING TO JOIN US. WE NEED TO KNOW THE NUMBER OF VEHICLES WE REQUIRE NOW SO WE’RE READY.
