The Mandatory Rules for Covid-19 protection practices...these WILL be strictly enforced.

  • Stay a minimum of 6 feet apart from each other at all times.

  • If you are not feeling well in any way, please do not attend this Mission.
  • * 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: Military scheduled to give honors at 3pm at the funeral home. We will stand the flag line for the honors as given. Please bring your flags as PGR flags are not available.
Family is all around the country and due to circumstances may not be present so it is a little more important for the Patriot Guard to stand.
