Special Covid-19 Mission Guidelines:

Updated 8 March 2022

Based on the most current COVID-19 Prevention Guidelines: Protect Yourself and Your Family from COVID-19, and CDC Guidelines of 3 March 2022, going forward, the Lead Ride Captain for any mission will be responsible for determining whether PGR members will have to mask up or not. Please ensure that you have a mask with you, should the need arise, and respect the LRC’s decision in these matters.

Special Information:

Calling hours are from 12-2pm at the funeral home. PGR will stand a respectful flag line during the final hour (approximately 1-2pm) of calling hours. Following calling hours, there will be a short remembrance at the funeral home.  At the end of that service, PGR Members will render honors inside the funeral home.  Interment is set for a later date so the mission will end after rendering honors.

Please come prepared with a clean US or Army Flag. Dress for the weather, current forecast is for temperatures in the upper 40s and precipitation.  Thank you for taking time to honor the service of Mr. Seeman and support his loving family.

Is there a Second Stage to this Mission?
