Confederate Memorial Day Saturday May 5, 2018

This is Palmetto Battalion affiliated event. Assemble under bridge at Elmwood Cemetery at 09:00 for inspection and roll call. We march into cemetery to UDC podium at 09:45 and stack arms. At conclusion of UDC service, we will fire 3 volleys. We will march to cemetery entrance for a short break. After break, we will march to Statehouse & stack arms. At conclusion of SCV ceremony we will fire three more volleys. We will dismiss at Statehouse. I am arranging for us to have cold water at Statehouse. Some will want to park at Statehouse for carpool back to vehicles under bridge. Here are a couple maps that might be useful.
