2023 Operation Ramp It Up : Date : May 29th Where : Arlington Cemetery. We have additional opportunities that we are looking for help –

  1. Friday evening/night (concert & fireworks) – we are looking for people to help with directing traffic, handing info out at the front gate, man the Field of Memories tent and help at the soft drink tent.  For this evening we prefer high school age or older
  2. Lunch with a Veteran on Sunday afternoon (lunch begins at 11:30)  We are looking for people to help set up tables, chairs, etc. and tear down as soon as it is over.   We are also looking for people to help during lunch (serving, bussing tables, etc.).  I’d be okay with young teenagers for this, as long as they can work without constant supervision.
