Staging Time: 10:00

St. Francis Catholic Church
231 West Woodworth
Ellsworth, Wisconsin

Ride Captain:

Posted without an RC due to short notice.
Please come prepared with your own flags and water.
Any member attending please contact State Captain John Curran

Special Instructions:

Staging 10:00 a.m.
Private Mass 11:00 a.m.
Escort to burial
1. We will not be indoors in proximity to family or visitors.
2. The Ride Captain will present the plaque and dog tags to the family privately.
3. No other members will assist or attend.
4. ALL members MUST wear a face mask over mouth and nose at all times from the time they dismount or leave their vehicle until they depart.
5. Members may remove masks if they are more than 8 feet from anyone else but must have it in place should anyone approach. Failure to follow this will result in being ordered to leave the mission.
6. We have asked that the family and friends maintain a safe distance of 8 – 10 feet at all times (therefore we cannot line the immediate entry area or open doors).
7. I ask each member to make sure they have a mask with them at all times as well as hand sanitizer and possibly gloves (laundered between each mission).
I have reviewed this policy with National and have their agreement that failure to follow this is not only a violation of the trust of the people we serve but jeopardizes the health and safety of all involved. Any person who does not wish to follow this policy should refrain from attending any mission.
Any member violating this policy will be removed immediately and permanently from the Patriot Guard Riders.
Flags & Water:
Flags will not be provided
If you have large bike flags, please bring them.
Water WILL NOT be provided, please bring your own.
