Bells of Peace - World War I Remembrance at Explore Park

Sunday, November 11, 2018

Please join us at the Explore Park Visitors’ Center, Milepost 115 on the Blue Ridge Parkway, and join Americans across the nation who will toll bells at 11:00 am. A moment of silence will be followed by the release of doves courtesy of Oakey's Funeral Service and Crematory. This is in remembrance of those who served and sacrificed in The Great War that changed the world and also to honor all veterans and active duty military. Following the bells of peace enjoy the American World War I Red Cross War Cake made from the original recipe. Copies of the recipe will be made available. Additional exhibits will also be on display in the Explore Park Visitor Center. Event concludes with the showing of “The Lost Battalion” at 12:00pm in the Visitor Center Theater.
