Please join us as we remember all whom made the ultimate sacrifice during the Civil War. We have our services the weekend before to get away from the Firetrucks, picnics and everything else that Memorial Day seems to have become. The Day begins with Church Services and the 3rd annual "Blessing of the Colors" at the 1st Presbyterian Church on Main Street in Hackettstown NJ. This ceremony is for both Blue and Gray, as the minister is from Mississippi and is hoping for Southern Participation. We will then march down to the CW Monument (which is just 5 years old this year) for services. All are welcome! The Date is Sunday May 21, 2006, beginning at 9:15 am in Hackettstown NJ.
