Lakeland's 5th Annual Warrior Walk

Detailed information under the flyer.

Wounded Warrior Walk Date: Saturday, July 19, 2014
Time: 6:30 A.M. ( 13 minutes before sunrise)
Place: First Presbyterian Church at 175 Lake Hollingsworth Drive. That’s the big (only)
church on the east side of the lake. Same location as the recent March of Dimes event.

Parking for volunteers is available via the north (left) driveway.

If you are coming from the Bartow area on US 98 turn left at the first
traffic light past Grove Park Shopping center. Follow Crystal Lake Drive to Lake
Hollingsworth Drive where you will turn right and find the church 100 yards on your right.

If you are coming from the Tampa or north Lakeland area go south on US98 which becomes
Bartow High Way. Don’t miss the turn. Continue on US98 then turn south (right ) onto
Hollingsworth Road (At Lakeland Senior High School) which will take you to Lake Hollingsworth
Drive. Turn left to the church.

From South Lakeland, take Cleveland Heights or Beacon to Lake Hollingsworth.

Freq: Lakeland repeater. Don’t forget to charge your handhelds. I will be on the air
by 5:00 A.M. Call for “Bill” or WW1WDP

Contrary to previous information assignments will be made at the church that morning. I have
the LARC safety vests; don’t forget your name tags.

I thank each and every one of you for helping to make this a great event.

At the March of Dimes walk several of us saw the essential donut delivery guy in
his $50,000.00 Audi forget his manners and cause a scene. We were all really glad
he wasn’t associated with us.
Proverbs 15:1 “A soft answer turns away wrath but a harsh word stirs up anger.” Be ready
for heat, egos and tempers.

For those who are interested and available, the small American flags will be placed
on the church grounds at 9:00 AM Wednesday morning.
