Two CMM members, past President Lance Lyngar and President Bill Schwetke, and their companions Cat and Louis, participated in the ceremony. Lance and Bill both were part of the Color Guard, and Bill presented the chapter wreath.
Past Virginia SAR President Phil Williams was the master of ceremonies, and Janet Uhlar, author of "Freedom's Cost: The Story of Nathanael Greene", was the keynote speaker. The local JROTC and Civil Air Patrol Squadron presented a Parade of Flags as part of the program.
As has become the tradition, the participants gathered on Friday evening at Ernie's Restaurant for the seafood buffet and camaraderie. The parade down to the river bank to observe the reenactment of the crossing was shortened to a march to the gazebo due to the mud in the reenactment area. After the ceremony the participants enjoyed a lunch of Brunswick Stew before dispersing.
