  • * ADDITIONAL MANDATORY REQUIREMENT: Wearing a protective face covering of some kind is required...homemade facemask, bandanna, etc. (Patriotic face coverings would be particularly appropriate) This will not only provide an extra layer of protection to ourselves and others, but will send the message that the PGR takes this crisis seriously and is performing this Mission responsibly.
Special Information: We will form a flag line at the church to greet family and friends for an 11:30 service. A dignified transfer will take place at about 12:45 PM. to the Woodlawn Cemetery, 130 N. Pearl Street, a short distance from the church.

The weather for Monday at this time is expected to be in the high 80's. Please arrive with a clean 3x5 flag.  Bike flags would be nice for the transfer. I will have some water available if needed.
