Special Event November 22
Please join us November 22 at 2 pm to honor all our Veterans at the newly enlarged Monument in front of the Museum's Spath Flagpole at 544 North Sequim Avenue. Local Veteran Dan Smith, with assistance from Louie Rychlik & Jerry Brownfield, built the addition to the Monument. This will allow space for more tiles honoring those who have served our country. Smith was a member of VA-192 (known as the World Famous Golden Dragons) during Vietnam on the Aircraft Carrier USS Bon Homme Richard. The men, who all donated their time for construction of the new addition, are Pioneers & Sequim Alumni. Larry Klinefelter is the Marine Veteran, who gets down on his knees to set the tiles, maintains the area and manages the project. This project began at the Carlsborg VFW with Ted Cordua & wife Pauline leading the team to partner with the Museum & City of Sequim to share the right-away for the Monument. After a hand-shake agreement to build this needed area, Navy Veteran Myron Spath joined in with a new Flagpole in memory of his parents, Laura & Louis & son Wally. The rest is history, with the dedication of caretaker Veteran Bob Cooper, who continued Ted's work, & now Larry Klinefelter carrying on the tradition. USCG Captain (Ret) Bob Moss former skipper of the "Winona" will play the bagpipes during the "Flag Line" by the American Legion Riders. Local Boy Scout Troops will raise & lower the flag, & the short ceremony will honor all Veterans of the Military.
