Thousand Trails Hershey RV Resort, Lebanon, Pennsylvania – Day 4

We are parked at Thousand Trails Hershey RV Resort at Lebanon, Pennsylvania. We will move along later this morning.

Yesterday was sunny and 75 degrees…the first nice day we have had in a long time. More thunderstorms forecast for today.

Yesterday was also Memorial Day. In the activities schedule we received when we arrived, it said for yesterday…

10:00 AM – Memorial Day  Celebration at the Flag Pole (ranger station). The veterans Campbelltown VFW will be here to perform the Ceremony with a 21 gun salute, followed by our Parade, Golf Carts, Bicycles and Walkers. Sounds good we said to each other…let’s attend!

I returned from my walk at 9:15 and shortly thereafter heard three rounds of rifle fire…looked out the window and saw the seven vets saluting the flag. What the heck? Come to find out there was a communication gap between the vets and the park. They came early and had to move on for other obligations. At 10:00 AM we went to the ranger station and this is what we saw…

Assistant Manager Pam explained the communication problem, apologized for the mix-up and said we would have the remainder of the program anyways. She read a piece about the flag, we said the Pledge of Allegiance and sang My Country ‘Tis Of Thee…


After the ceremonies were complete, she asked if any of the veterans would like to speak. Four of us did…


When my turn, I thanked everyone for attending and for remembering the special meaning of the day. Then the parade started…







Due to our physical situations, we did not walk the parade route…


The remainder of our day involved reading, some computer time and napping. We hope you had a nice Memorial Day.

Enjoying Thousand Trails RV Resorts is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!

On October 27, 2012, I created a two-minute video titled America The Beautiful. The music America The Beautiful is by Christopher W. French. The photos, which I randomly selected, are from the states of Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Massachusetts, Mississippi, Montana, New Mexico, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Tennessee, Washington and West Virginia (not shown in that order)…are mine. Yup, That’s me standing in front of the Post Office in Luckenbach, Texas…Y’all!
