THE WALL THAT HEALS — VIETNAM MEMORIAL WALL REPLICA DISASSEMBLY

March 29 @ 11:45 am - 6:00 pm

THE WALL THAT HEALS — VIETNAM MEMORIAL WALL REPLICA DISASSEMBLY

Assist with this very important event by disassembling the Vietnam Wall panels.  Please note that there are 140 wall panels (faux marble) and each panel can weigh up to 80 lbs.  We will be carrying these panels around 50 yards from the framing area to the truck.  They are looking for 30 volunteers, please.

Please meet at the Roadhouse at 1145; will return around 1800.  Snacks and beverages will be provided.  Please wear weather appropriate attire and closed toed shoes or boots.  Media is probable, and we will be attending the closing ceremony at 1300 prior to starting disassembly.

Your volunteer support to make this possible is greatly appreciated!

The “Wall That Heals” is a replica of the Vietnam Memorial Wall located on the Capitol Mall in Washington, D.C.  It is a 3/4 scale replica 375 feet long and 7.5 feet tall at its highest point.  The Wall and Mobile Education Center will be available for viewing 24 hours a day at Lawson Creek Park (1309 Country Club Rd, New Bern NC 28560), and there will be programs and ceremonies every day.  In addition to Set-Up and Disassembly, The Vietnam Wall Committee is in need of volunteers to act as hosts, parking attendants, and miscellaneous activities.  These volunteer shifts will begin on Thursday morning (26 March) and continue until approximately noon on Sunday (29 March) and will be approximately four hours in length.

SMP will be providing transportation for the set-up on Wednesday, 25 March and for disassembly on Sunday 29 March.   If you are interested in volunteering as a host, parking attendant, or miscellaneous activities, please contact the SMP Front Desk for the Vietnam Wall Volunteer Committee contact information.
