"Bronze Hat" Ceremony to Honor Corporal Mike Young

August 31, 2007

   A “Bronze Hat" ceremony will be held at Chapel Park Cemetery on Cate Road in Brunswick this coming Tuesday, September 4 beginning at 11 a.m. to honor Corporal Mike Young and his family.  All employees, family and friends are invited to attend the ceremony which will unveil the bronze hat in his memory that has been placed at his gravesite.  The hat was made possible by donations from friends, employees and community organizations.  The ceremony will start at 11 a.m. hours and it is requested that members attempt to arrive by 1030 hours.  We feel that this will be a rewarding time for the honor of Cpl. Young and his family.  Afterwards, Captain Joe’s Seafood Restaurant has agreed to provide space for lunch, Dutch treat, at the restaurant.
