Big, big thanks to the 8 super patriots who braved the rainy weather & stood tall for Mr. Yarbrough, his family & friends. The parking lot filed to overflowing, for he was very well thought of in the community & surrounding area. We were given a heads up to the large turn out & moved our staging area to the farthest area of the parking lot.
Flag wrangler, Nicki & hubby Soup, staked 2 flags at the drive way entrance even though it was pouring. Later, she positioned her truck under the front canopy so we could retrieve flags. We then established the flag line keeping all under cover. At the start of service, she left the line & returned w her truck so we could once again deal with the flags w/o getting drenched.
Thanks to everyone for doing what you do. It is a big deal to the family & friends.
