July

  • CANCELED! Battle of Chehalis River on Saturday, July 18 through Sunday, July 19

     Chehalis Civil War Reenactment Canceled June 24, 2020 Regretfully, I must announce that the Chehalis Civil War reenactment scheduled for July 18-19, 2020, is canceled. The event’s prime sponsor, the Chehalis Veterans Memorial Museum, and its board of directors communicated this morning and agreed to withdraw museum support for the event as a result of the evolving COVID situation and social unrest. Additionally, the landowners concurred with the museum and requested no Civil War event be held on their property in July. They indicated potential willingness to host an event in August or September, depending on how things are then.
    I will monitor developments with the WCWA Board of Directors (comprised of the Executive and General Boards) and will pursue a later event date if there is a consensus to do so. Depending on factors early next year, the museum indicated an interest in sponsoring a reenactment on the farm next summer.
    Very Respectfully,
    Kevin Saville Chehalis
    Event Coordinator and WCWA treasurer

November

  • Auburn Veteran’s Day Parade on Saturday, November 07 through Sunday, November 08

    November 7, Veteran’s Day Parade, Auburn, Sanctioned.

    All are invited to attend the Auburn Veterans Day Parade on Sat, Nov. 10.  The parade begins at 11.  All participants are asked to arrive no later than 10:30. Our staging area where we meet and form up at the corner of  H St SE and Main St. Main St is the parade route. Please bring your colors. The parade organizers, along with Auburn P.D., have banned shooting at the parade, so we will have to wow the crowd with our awesome colors and our precision marching.  

      Everyone is invited: cavalry, artillery, civilians, and of course infantry. We especially need Confederates at the parade. After marching, there will be a no-host (pay for yourself)  lunch at the Old Country Buffet in Federal Way.  Consider it a final chance to see your buddies for the season.  

     The parade coordinator recommends parking at the Auburn Transit Center Parking Garage at 2nd and A St SW, or at Washington Elementary School. Johnny Joyce, the event coordinator, recommends parking at the Auburn General Hospital in downtown Auburn. 

      Hope to see many of you here for our final event of the season.

      Sincerely, Johnny Joyce
