Subject: MOPH and Mount Vernon Celebrates Purple Heart Day, Friday and Saturday, 10 and 11 August 18
Date: Tue, 15 May 2018 06:47:33 -0400
Fellow Patriots, here is the latest information regarding the two days of events at Mount Vernon this year to celebrate National Purple Heart Day.
Region Commanders, please share this information with your Department's Leadership who I hope will share this email with their respective Chapters.
For everyone, please be sure to go online to register for your Free Tickets to the Wreath Laying and Mansion Tour on Friday, 10 Aug and the full ceremony on the East Lawn of Mount Vernon the morning of Saturday, 11 Aug. All tickets are Free. Saturday's ticket also allows access to all of Mount Vernon Estates.
The Mansion Tour on Friday, 10 August is limited to the number of participants so if you have not gone on a tour of Gen. Washington's house and wish to do so you need to RSVP as it's "first come, first served". If you have been on the tour last year, but still wish to participate in the wreath laying do get your tickets anyway, just let me know that you do not plan to do the Mansion Tour.
Hopefully the Mount Vernon Inn will be open after we're done so everyone can have a nice evening of adult beverages after the Friday events.
To attend the Reception please RSVP directly to me. All I need is a name and number in your party.
This year we have support from the Hampton Inn and Suites, Alexandria, VA with discounted hotel rooms for Friday and Saturday nights. Information regarding how to make your own reservations is included in the attached information paper.
Be sure to get your tickets as you must have them to enter the Mount Vernon grounds on either days.
And, please share this with everyone in your respective Chapters as we're planning to have a huge turnout of Purple Heart recipients and guests this year!!!
Yours in Patriotism,
Junior Vice Commander, Dept of VA
