VB Photo Volunteer ....TAKING PHOTOS!!!

Everyone has busy hectic lives. Its hard to keep up with everything that is going on. When it comes to taking photos, nothing can substitute taking the time to shoot. If you have some time and would like to exercise those photo muscles and add to your "10,000 hours", We may be able to help. Volunteering can sometimes get you access that you wouldn't normally have, can get you published, can give you practice, and all in a no lose situation (unlike for hire shoots). Just RSVP an event or leave me a comment. I look forward to working with you!

Mayor Robert M. “Bobby” Dyer and the Mayor’s Veterans Committee hosted the annual Memorial Day Ceremony, Monday, May 27 at noon at the Tidewater Veterans Memorial, 1000 19th St., across from the Virginia Beach Convention Center.
This annual event is held to honor and pay tribute to the men and women of the armed forces "who gave their all."

As part of the opening ceremony, the Virginia Beach Police Department’s Honor Guard Unit-Rifle Team provided a 21-Gun Salute, followed by the Invocation given by Chaplain David Yemington, Vietnam Veterans of America and Virginia Beach Chapter 969. Music was provided by the United States Air Force Heritage Brass and the National Anthem and “God Bless America” was performed by Tony Zontini of Virginia Beach. Following opening remarks by CDR Edward T. McCarthy, USCGR (Ret.), Mayor Dyer provided the keynote address. Mayor Dyer was sworn in as Mayor on Nov. 20, 2018 and is the first Veteran to be directly elected as mayor in Virginia Beach history. Dyer served in the United States Marine Corps from 1968 to 1972. Before being sworn in as Mayor, Dyer represented the Centerville District for 14 years.

Military commands and organizations were invited to bring wreaths to place at the memorial during the formal ceremony on behalf of their command. The public was also invited to attend. Citizens placed an American flag (provided) around the base of the memorial to honor a relative or friend. The flags will remain in place for one week.
