For Virtual Attendees
The Alamance Battleground Chapter desires to make Patriots’ Day a hybrid North Carolina State color guard event by allowing participation by Zoom link as well as for in- person participation. For those who would prefer to have a virtual presence, an invitation link for Zoom attendance will be sent to your email a few days before the event.
All virtual attendees must mute themselves when not speaking so background noises do not become a problem. Please also do not share the virtual link as we do not want the event to be hijacked by unscrupulous individuals bent on causing mischief. Virtual attendees will be able to see and hear the proceedings as they occur, and in-person attendees will be able to see and hear the virtual presenters on a screen display. Please dress and conduct yourself accordingly.
