Mark Sumner has returned home from a return visit to France to walk along the beaches of Normandy and to return to Bastogne, the site of the Battle of the Bulge.  It was the trip of a lifetime that was 70 years in the making.

You are invited to share in his story and the story of the East Chapel Hill High students and their mentor, Robin McMahon, at a special event on Thursday, June 26th, at the Seymour Center on Homestead Road, Chapel Hill.  The event is from 5 – 7:30 pm.  There will be snacks for everyone as you see a presentation on their trip.  Learn more

This project was a monumental undertaking.  The students raised $10,000 in just six months to take Mark and fellow veteran Ed Chappell (along with their spouses) back to France to attend the 70th and final official commemoration of D-Day at Normandy.  What an accomplishment.
