50th Anniversary March
Saturday, August 24, we commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Historic March on Washington by convening again on the National Mall. Will you join us?
Plans are underway all across this country for people to converge on Washington, DC with a rallying cry of jobs, justice and freedom. As such,NAACP Branches in the Panhandle have made plans for a tour bus to travel to Washington to participate in this historic event. Since we are only planning for one bus, seating is very limited.
Tentatively the bus will depart Pensacola at midnight Thursday, August 22rd and begin making its trek through the Panhandle via 1-10. We will arrive in Washington on Friday evening, August 23rd, and get a good night's rest. Early Saturday morning we depart for the rally and march to the National Mall. Following Saturday's activities we depart the area and head back home to Florida.
The cost for the trip is $200.00 which includes lodging (based on double occupancy) and roundtrip bus fare. If you are interested in attending we need your name, phone number, email address, and $100.00 deposit o/a August 3rd. The balance of the trip will be due on o/a August 19, 2013. Please make checks payable to: NAACP. You can also charge the cost of the trip by clicking on "Donate" then "50th Anniversary March" in the menu above and filling out the form. Students are encourage to attend also and will be charged a lower rate.
