Veterans Day Events

Posted November 4, 2019

Base Commander Sends:

Hello Bremerton Base Members. I hope this e-mail finds you doing well. I just wanted to share events for the up-coming Veterans Day weekend, as we have many events we have been invited to attend, but our main ones being the Auburn Veterans Day parade and the event at the Kitsap pavilion. So here we go.

  • Friday, November 8th - Pinecrest Elementary School - 5530 Pine Road NE, Bremerton Wa 98311-  Friday, November 8th. We have been invited to attend an assembly beginning at 1330 at the school. We were also asked to bring the float to display for the day. At this time, Float Manager Sam Swenson and his back-up Vice Commander Don Carpenter plan to have the float staged prior to the assembly. I will provide a back-up diving alarm and power supply to ensure they know we are there.

  • Saturday, November 9th 54th annual Veterans Parade & Observance Auburn, WA, Parade begins at 1100  - From Seattle Base Commander Ric HedmanThe meeting point is ON "K" street at Main in Auburn.I will get us checked and our number. I would like up to begin staging by 9:30. With all the people looking for parking spots to view the parade it is very tough to hold a space large enough to stage the two floats and the Bikes and possibly a car. Getting there earlier is better if you can. I can't say which side of Main we will be on, north or south. I will find that out when I check with the SeaFair folks when I get there Please remind your people that there is NO distribution of items from the parade side. Anything to be passed out HAS to be done from the Sidewalks. Also it was stressed that the parade speed limit is 5MPH, (walking speed). Bremerton Base will muster at @ 0800 at Lowe's in Port Orchard to carpool/convoy to event. At this time I am unsure who will be driving. Please communicate with me if you can drive and how many you can take, and I will attempt to coordinate if possible. I will be riding shotgun with Sam bringing the float to Auburn. We will be in the gravel parking lot next to the parking garage to transport people to the staging area. We normally go for lunch afterwards. Looking at the forecast this morning, the usual - mostly cloudy with light rain likely, 72% chance of precipitation. Plan accordingly. Website for parade is below.

  • Saturday, November 9th 

  • 1800 Port Orchard Eagles. Flyer attached.

  • Monday, November 11th Veterans Day. Flyer Attached.

       Please wear your colors for the events. Any questions or concerns, please contact me.

       I will send an additional e-mail concerning our meeting and elections for November once we get through Veterans Day.
