23 Feb 2015 - "The President's Own" Marine Band Concert

Just wanted to pass information regarding an upcoming event by "The President's Own" United States Marine Band. We are performing a concert titled "Time Capsule 1945: The 70th Anniversary of the End of World War II" on Monday, Feb. 23, at 7:30 p.m. EST. Coincidentally, that day is also the 70th anniversary of the Iwo Jima flag-raisers, so we want to pass the word to as many Marines as possible. The concert will be streaming live at Marine Band Marines so you can watch it from home on your computer (it's a sold out performance; taking place at the Music Center at Strathmore in North Bethesda, Md.).

Here's a description of the program and I've attached a flyer if you need it. If you have any questions, feel free to shoot me an email or give me a call.
Here's the flyer
The year 2015 marks the 70th anniversary of the final campaign in the Pacific Theater and the end of the great Second World War. Although seven decades have passed since that turbulent time, we continue to celebrate the monumental accomplishments of the incredible men and women of our "Greatest Generation" and marvel at the enduring spirit of our country during one of its most difficult eras. It was also exactly 70 years from this concert date-on Feb. 23, 1945-that Joe Rosenthal snapped his immortal photograph of five Marines and a Navy corpsman raising the flag on Mount Suribachi during the battle of Iwo Jima. Come join the Marine Band and guest narrator Jim Lehrer, journalist, author, and former anchor of the PBS NewsHour, at The Music Center at Strathmore for a Time Capsule concert that celebrates the legacy of the hard fought victory of World War II and honors those who so valiantly carried the nation on their shoulders during this iconic year in American history.

11-16 Apr 2015 - Western Sky Aviation Fly-in/Drive-in

My name is Rebecca Edwards and I am a museum representative at Western Sky Aviation Warbird Museum in St. George, Utah. I am contacting you to let you know of the upcoming events the museum has scheduled for this Spring that the veterans of Southern Utah and their respective organizations maybe interested in attending and perhaps participating in.

I will explain a little about the events and have also attached flyers for more information.

The first event is a Fly-in/Drive-in Breakfast on April 11, 2015. The breakfast will be at the museum located at 4196 South Airport Parkway, St. George, Utah. The museum is donating 50% of the net proceeds to the Utah Honor Flight Organization to help send Utah's

WWII Veterans to their memorial in Washington, D.C. Everyone is invited to attend.

The next event will be our Armed Forces Celebration May 15 & 16, 2015. The museum wishes to celebrate and honor all those who have served or are currently serving in our Armed Forces. We kick off the celebration with a WWII style Hangar Dance on Friday, May 15, 2015 from 7 pm - 11 pm. Tickets are required for this event. Please call me (Rebecca Edwards)  at (435) 229-4985 for a veterans discount on ticket price.

The following morning on Saturday May 16, 2015 from 10 am - 4 pm the museum will have a Wings & Wheels event. This event is free to the public. I would like to offer up booth space free of charge to any Veteran Organization that would like to participate in this event. Please see the attached flyer for more about this event. Last year we had approximately 1,500 people in attendance to our Wings & Wheels and 230 to our Hangar Dance. This year we are expecting over 2,000 to attend our Armed Forces Celebration Weekend. We hope to see you there.

Feel free to contact me if your organization would like to participate in this event or if you have any questions.
