One Week to Go!!!
We're one week away from the arrival of the 2015 Very Important Families for Warrior Family Beach Week!
A VERY SPECIAL YEAR!!! It's with great honor that we'll be hosting the Warrior Families in the Bethany Beach community on the 14th Anniversary of September 11th. During the week, Bethany Beach, DE will host 31 VIFs (Very Important Families) for a week of rest, relaxation and fun. Residents and visitors can show our most deserving fellow Americans, that Bethany Beach is a community that cares. Here are a few ways:
- 9/10 THURSDAY from 6-9 PM Family Night: Warrior Families will be in downtown Bethany Beach having dinner, shopping and enjoying the beauty of the town. You can recognize the Warrior Families by the OSTD ID Tag they wear (red, white, and blue VIF tag). If you see any of the VIF’s, thank them for their service and sacrifice.
- 9/11 FRIDAY from 5-5:15 PM... LINE THE STREETS: HERO'S WELCOME HOME. Be part of the community showing honor to the VERY IMPORTANT FAMILIES (VIF’s) of Operation SEAs the Day. Local Communities will line the streets to cheer and recognize the Warrior families as a motorcade leaves Sea Colony Marketplace, via Route 1 through South Bethany and onto Route 54 (Fenwick) towards Selbyville into Bayside, eventually reaching their final destination of Freeman Stage at Bayside. Buses carrying Warrior families will leave Sea Colony Marketplace 5:00 PM and arrive at Bayside 5:15 PM. Bring your family and friends --- wear Red, White, and Blue ---- wave an American flag. Or come to Bayside and give these brave men and women the HERO’S WELCOME HOME they deserve as they arrive at Freeman Stage at Bayside around 5:15 PM. We are very excited to announce that Aaron Tippin will be the Grand Marshal of the Motorcade!
- 9/11 FRIDAY at 7PM, Aaron Tippin Concert at Freeman Stage at Bayside: Aaron Tippin topped the charts with Where The Stars And Stripes And Eagles Fly a song that became part of the American soundtrack during the aftermath of 9/11.
