5th Annual Christmas Eve Support the Troops Walk

Just received this from ID Gary D'Orazio:

"All Lions , family members, friends and all who want to show their support of our Military away from home at Christmas are invited and encouraged to join International Director Gary and his wife Lion Linda D'Orazio in a Walk from Julie Davis Park to the State House Christmas Tree on Christmas Eve starting at 6pm....
We recognize that is a special time most want to spend with their families and we also recognize that our troops stationed abroad would like the same opportunity. As a gesture of support and appreciation for their sacrifices for our country please consider taking one hour of your time to demonstrate our gratitude to the troops and their families for their commitment and dedication.
We will commence our walk from the Art Gallery and Museum area on Capitol Blvd Julie Davis Park...  across from the library precisely at 6pm.... walk on the sidewalks to the State Capitol Christmas Tree ...conduct a ceremony , sing a few carols and finish up  approximately in  one hour.  A small sacrifice on our part compared to our troops around the world.
Please join us ....Christmas Eve will take on an additional meaning by participating."
