DARTMOUTH — The Rotary Club of Dartmouth is sponsoring a free bus trip for Dartmouth’s Vietnam-era veterans on Saturday to The Moving Wall, a half-scale replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in the nation’s capital, during its visit to Wareham.

Rotary Club member Scott Ciardi said the Dartmouth Council on Aging will supply the club with round-trip transportation for Dartmouth-area veterans, family members and friends who want a chance to see the mobile tribute.

He said that fellow Rotary member Ellie Marland suggested the club offer the free bus rides to the site when she heard that the memorial would be visiting.

“We’re always looking to do things that are community-oriented, and everybody thought it would be a good idea," Ciardi said. “We thought there might be some older veterans in nursing homes or assisted-living facilities that don’t have transportation, and if they needed a ride, we would bring them."

Ciardi and fellow Rotarian Moe Lemieux are co-chairing the effort.

The bus (or buses if needed) will leave from the Dartmouth senior center at 10 a.m. Saturday and return in the late afternoon. Interested veterans can contact Ciardi at 781-702-0059 for further details or to save a seat. Reservations can be made through Dartmouth Veterans Service Officer Roy Oliveira by calling 508-910-1818.

Even if the response is minimal, the club will bring whoever signs up to visit the traveling memorial, Ciardi said.
