Come gather with friends and family and learn about The Summit Project in L.L. Bean’s flagship store in Freeport! All are welcome to attend. 7pm on Feb 12, 2016.
The Summit Project is a nationally recognized Maine-based organization that pays tribute to fallen service members from Maine who have died in the line of duty since September 11, 2001. The organization was founded by David Cote, active-duty Marine Corps Major, Iraq war veteran and recipient of the “Marine of the Year Award” at the 11th-annual Military Times Service Members of the Year awards ceremony.
David will tell us about his program that honors veterans by engraving their name on stones that loved ones, friends and family members carry to mountain summits around the world. This inspirational program is one you don’t want to miss as David tells it through beautiful images and stories.
