Bus Headed from Vienna for Memorial Day Event

Vienna’s Church of the Good Shepherd (United Methodist) is inviting local veterans to attend the May 29 Memorial Day wreath laying event in Washington, D.C., at the World War II Memorial, where Good Shepherd’s pastor will pray and church member Dave Yoho will be a featured speaker.

“A bus has been provided to leave from our church to attend the wreath laying on Memorial Day,” said The Rev. Eric Song, Good Shepherd’s pastor. “We have seats available and would like them to be used by veterans and elderly who would have a hard time driving to the WWII Memorial.”

Fairfax businessman and professional speaker Dave Yoho has been selected to address those at the Memorial Day program. Yoho, an author and World War II veteran, will speak prior to the wreath laying at the World War II Memorial. The bus will leave the Vienna church around 7:45 a.m. May 29 and return after noon. Those wishing to join the trip are asked to sign up at www.signupgenius.com/go/30e0a4ca5a729aaf58-busseating
