The Saint Petersburg Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution will be hosting their annual Patriot Day 9-11 Prayer Breakfast on September 11, 2010. Registration starts at 7:45 a.m. and breakfast at 8:00 a.m. at the St. Petersburg Yacht Club, 11 Central Avenue, St. Petersburg, FL. The keynote speaker will be US Congressman C.W. “Bill” Young and the guest speaker will be St. Petersburg Mayor Bill Foster. The 9-11 Prayer will be given by VA Bay Pines Chaplain Father Thomas Dieter. International recording artist, Erica DiCeglie will sing the national anthem. Local returning Iraq veterans, Cpl Michael Jernigan, USMC (Ret) and Lt Col Kathy Champion, USA (Ret) will represent “Paws for Patriots”.
Nine years ago, on September 11, 2001 terrorists hijacked four civilian aircrafts which crashed into the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington DC and into a field in southwestern Pennsylvania. Patriot Day is observed on September 11 as a reminder that over 3,000 lives were lost because of the horrific attacks on our country. Also, we remember and honor those patriots and veterans who have sacrificed so much to protect our freedom.
Please join us for this patriotic event. Breakfast is $30.00 per person, of which $10 will be donated to Paws for Patriots, a service of Southeastern Guide Dogs, located in Palmetto, FL, which provides therapy dogs for disabled veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan.
Please make checks payable to the Saint Petersburg Chapter DAR. Your check will be your reservation.
