Nearly ten years ago, our assembly members put on their full regalia in 95+ degree weather to lead a patriotic parade in Caldwell, North Carolina.  This was when our members were part of Msgr. Francis K. O’Brien Assembly 2254 in Burlington.  We are still joining area veterans to lead this annual community parade.

Now, with the addition of Msgr. William O’Brien Assembly 3365 in Durham, we continue our tradition, but support Assembly 3365.  They are located near Caldwell in northern Durham at St. Matthew’s Church.

What did you do on July 4th?  Did you watch pouring rain in parts of Durham and Orange County?  It was clear and dry in Caldwell!  Well, we did have a few sun showers that provided a cooling mist, but little more.  Read more about the parade and view a video of this year’s event on the Chapel Hill VFW Post 9100 website.  Link
