Antonio's Bright White Jacket made an effective fill light!
Bill McDowell's Mono Pod kept him from slipping in the snow (Steady, Lad!).

Here's the write up response from the General Meade Society...........
MEMBERS & FRIENDS OF THE MEADE SOCIETY:
Re: General George Meade's Birthday Service and Champagne Toast at Laurel Hill Cemetery
It was a great event that generated a record turn-out of participants and perhaps the best weather we have had in quite awhile. The music, the colors, the pageantry and of course, the food were all spectacular!
Dr. Andy Waskie, directed an organized & dignified procession despite the swelling numbers of attendees. It was a fitting tribute to General Meade, his gallant soldiers and this year - his dear mother.
Job well done by everyone involved - THANK YOU!
Photos from yesterday's service are available for viewing on the GMS Flickr account -
***Anyone willing to share their photos from the Birthday service can email them to :
GeneralMeadeSociety@gmail.com - and we will gladly post them onto our Flickr account.

Activities include: administering the Meade school scholarship, tours of Meade-related sites in Philadelphia, living history presentations, historical symposiums, supporting battlefield preservation, conducting graveside services honoring war heroes and the adoption of the Meade Monument and HQ site in Gettysburg, PA.
