Boulevard of Remembrance Interpretive Sign Dedication

Thursday, August 31, 2017 - 09:30 to 10:30

The go-ahead from JBLM has been received for our Boulevard of Remembrance interpretive sign dedication on 31 August at 0930 at the Ft Lewis Museum.
Remember, this all started with Polly and Dick M. getting the sign on I-5, now the complimentary sign that tells you the history is ready to go and we need MOWW folks to attend a short dedication ceremony. The re-opening of the Ft Lewis will follow at 1000 but you do not have to stay for that if you need to leave.
Please make plans on attending this 30 minute ceremony that MOWW and the Tacoma Garden Club worked together on. JBLM also kindly allowed us to position the sign on the south side of the museum near their picnic tables.
Come with your MOWW paraphernalia and “show the flag”.
