Patriot Guard and Associates,
Just a reminder about the event on Saturday, 17 September 2016 for the Run For The Fallen/ CT Trees of Honor Dedication Ceremony. While we are staging at 1200 hrs (Noon), if you wish to help with the set-up prior to the run starting, you can arrive at any time after 0600 hrs (6:00 am) as Skip Petras will be there early to do so.
As a heads up, be advised that one of the contractors involved in the construction of the memorial has filed a suit against the City of Middletown to halt the dedication and opening of the park. The last I heard, his request for an injunction has been denied and the ceremony will go on as scheduled. Our participation in the event is not involved in the dispute as we are there to honor the veterans for whom the run is being held. If you should be approached by any members of the media who might want your opinion regarding the pending lawsuit, I would ask that you refer them to the City of Middletown, the organizers of the Park dedication, or to me or Skip Petras. We don’t want to be involved in any of the legal situation as it is still unfolding. Remember, we are there to honor the veterans.
