Garden Club to plant tree to honor fallen sailors

May 04, 2007

A patriotic tree planting by the Williamsport Garden Club will be held on Armed Forces Day, May 19, at 2 p.m. at the Springfield Farm Barn Complex.

The tree is in memory of two Washington County servicemen, Seaman Craig Wibberley, of Williamsport, and Fireman Apprentice Patrick Roy, of Keedysville. Wibberley and Roy died doing their duty when a terrorist bomb tore through the hull of the destroyer USS Cole during a refueling stop in Yemen in October 2000. Ceremonies will include invited local dignitaries and family members.

Patriotic music will be presented by the Brass and Wind Ensemble of the Rohrersville Band. Also, the Bulldog Detachment Color Guard with the Marine Corps League and Navy will be participating.
