Well, after spending a day at the museum meeting with the staff and working on what is going to happen, I can finally give an update on the Flier Memorial service.
It is a two day event, Thursday August 12- Friday August 13.
Due to the very personal nature of this memorial, there are many portions of it that will be for registered people only, most of whom will be family members of the Flier crew.
The Public Memorial Service is 11 am to noon on Friday, August 13. The public is invited, but if you wish to come to the lunch afterwards, you must pre-register.
For those traveling out of state, GLNMM has registered rooms at the Holiday Inn in Muskegon. Just mention the USS Flier Memorial.
But if the Holiday Inn isn’t your cup of tea, there are a number of other hotels in the area to stay at.
If, as a Flier family member, you have not received the Flier Memorial Service packet, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, and I’ll get it to you, or you can contact Charles Hinman at email@example.com
Sorry this post is so short, but we’ve been traveling frequently. I’m looking forward to getting back to routine.
