THE WALL THAT HEALS

MAY 7 – 10, 2020, BOONE COUNTY FAIRGROUNDS

HOSTED BY FLORA GRANGE

The Wall That Heals

We are working on plans for hosting “The Wall That Heals”, the ¾ size replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington, DC, and will need help from all of our members.

We especially need help from you to serve as “Ambassador Volunteers”.  This would entail greeting visitors when they arrive; pointing out where the Wall, The Mobile Education Center, etc, is located; helping them find where the name of a friend or loved one is located on the Wall; and just generally talking to them, making them feel welcome, and listening to their stories, especially those of the veterans who attend.

There will be a training session for volunteers on Wednesday, May 6, at 6:00 pm, in front of the Wall.  We would urge you to attend if at all possible.

We will be working in 4 hour shifts.  There won’t be any physical labor involved, but you will have to be on your feet for those 4 hours.

Please contact Emalee at [email protected] or call or text me at 815-222-9943 as soon as possible.

Thank you so much, and look forward to hearing from our GREAT VOLUNTEERS at Flora Grange!
