Brothers, Friends, Riders.
Sunday afternoon we will finally get to Welcome Home the Newlywed's, SSgt. Jonathan and SPC. & Catherine Schmanski who have been stationed apart from each other while over in the sand box. We were requested by Jonathan's Mother Elizabeth who is a member of region 9. Jonathan & Catherine's plane landed earlier then expected the other day, so the Welcome Homes at JFK & also in CT had to be canceled. Elizabeth is going up to CT to pick them up and bring them home to Long Island Sunday via the Orient Point Ferry. At the bottom of this email is a short note from Elizabeth regarding a little background on the couple.

This will be a 2 part mission:
One welcome home at the Orient Point Ferry and escort if allowed by the weather, then also a flag line at Elizabeth's Home for when they arrive

Sunday February 20th, 2011
Stage 1.    Orient Point: Ferry arrives at 1620 hrs
Stage at the Dunkin Donuts at the Riverhead Circle (near the hospital)
KSU at 1510 hrs, be staged by 1500 hrs

Stage 2.    Riverhead Home: expected arrival by 1650 hrs
Stage at Lobster Roll @ 3225 Sound Ave Riverhead by 1630 hrs
Address of home will be given at this staging rather then posted

Ride Captains, please advise availability and which stage you can be at
so that I may pass along info such as addresses, cell numbers or vehicles description

Support Vehicles, please also let me know if we can have the region flags available

Thank you
Ride Safe ~ God Bless
