The cemetery tour at Ft. Stewart for the spring 2013 has been announced. The data below was approved for me to post to various lists by Patrick Yount, so pass the word on to others who may want to attend.
Dear Friends and Council member,
On behalf of the Fort Stewart-Hunter Army Airfield Garrison Commander, Col. Kevin F. Gregory, I cordially invite you to join us for the semiannual Fort Stewart Historic Communities Council meeting and Spring Cemetery visit, 24 April 2013.
During this visit, scheduled stops include Sand Hill, Congregational, Smith Chapel and Smith Cemeteries.
Participants can meet at either the installation’s Pass and Permit Office, building 8093, on Highway 144 (8 to 8:45 a.m.), or at the Liberty County Recreation Area/Hinesville National Guard parking lot on Highway 84 (07:30 to 08:15 a.m.). Buses will be prepositioned at both locations. Both buses link up at the Pass and Permit site, at 0845 before departing. The tour starts at 9 a.m.
Attendees will be afforded the opportunity to dine at an installation dining facility. The lunch cost is $4.60 for adults or $3.80 for youth. Unfortunately the dining facility only accepts cash. Individuals can help expedite by purchasing their lunches before the tour leaves, at the check-in table.
Please dress comfortably. Flat walking shoes are suggested. Participants may also wish to bring a bottle of water and insect repellent. For your conveyance, a Port-a-Potty and hand washing station will be located at one of the cemeteries. In case of inclement weather, the sites may change.
If you have any questions or concerns, or if you wish to reserve a space, please call Pat Young, (912) 435-9872 or email him at Patrick.firstname.lastname@example.org
