State releases details on service for former Gov. Treen

BATON ROUGE - Today, details were released on the State Memorial Service honoring former Governor Dave Treen, along with the Mandeville memorial service and Treen's official obituary information.

STATE MEMORIAL SERVICE

The general public is encouraged to arrive at the State Capitol by 10 AM for the State Memorial Services on Monday, November 2, 2009. (The capitol will be open as early as 8:30 AM.) The funeral procession will arrive at the capitol at 10:30 AM and a military band will play as the funeral procession enters through the State Capitol front doors. (For this reason it will be very important for guests to have entered the capitol before 10:30 AM when the procession arrives.) A St. Timothy United Methodist soloist will then sing arrangements as the family is seated.

The Memorial Service ceremony in the Capitol Rotunda will begin at 11 AM with a hymn from the St. Timothy soloist. Reverend James Mitchell will then give the invocation. Following the invocation, Governor Jindal will give remarks, followed by remarks from Judge Jay Zainey. The Treen grandchildren will then all read scriptures, with final remarks by grandson, Jason Stewart Neville. Following Neville, Dr. David Conner Treen, Jr. will make remarks and then Rev. Mitchell will lead a prayer and give the closing message. The St. Timothy soloist will then sing a closing hymn as the capitol doors are opened, followed by a 19-gun salute that will mark the conclusion of the memorial service.

There will then be a visitation in the State Capitol Rotunda beginning at 1 PM and concluding at 5 PM.
