We are holding a Memorial service at the Lions Open Space on May 29th for a family member who has passed away.
He was a military vet and we would like the honor guard to do the folding of the flag and 21 gun solute, they use blanks not live ammo. we would also like to do Paper lanterns that float into the sky. Please let me know if this is possible and if we need a Special event pass for these requests.
I have already reserved the Lions open space and my confirmation number is 2-31222967.

Thank you,
I look forward to hearing from you.
