Deputy Mason Moore Memorial Service
5-22-17 Update

Producers & Editors:

Hello from your media team at readygallatin.com/funeral.

Here is an update on media coverage availability for Deputy Moore’s memorial service on Tuesday, May 22, 2017.

We are making pool video and still coverage available on the day of the service from the north side of The Bridge church in Belgrade. We will provide you with technical details on the feed this afternoon.

If you are planning on taking the live feed, bring your equipment to the north side of the church by 9:00am.

Parking at the church is not available. You will need to park at one of several locations and walk your gear in.

Parking locations are: Street parking on Cruiser Lane west of Jackrabbit Lane, Jackrabbit Lane north of Cruiser, or street parking on West Central off of Triple Crown.

Please do not block mailboxes or residential driveways with your vehicles.

You can best exit the area using Dry Creek from Cruiser Lane. However, you will have a better look at the procession leaving the church at West Central and Jackrabbit.

Please be aware that access to or departure from the site will take time. A large number of vehicles will accompany Deputy Moore’s procession to and from the church.

If you prefer, there will be more video and still opportunities at the Belgrade Special Events Center and Three Forks High School.  Media parking is set aside for you at the Events Center.

For information on processions to and from Tuesday’s ceremonies, please refer to our release at readygallatin.com/funeral.

Needless to say, this is a highly emotional time for the Moore family and for Deputy Moore’s colleagues. We are asking for your cooperation and understanding at this time.

Out of respect for the family, no other video or still cameras will be allowed at the church.

The Bridge is private property and we are there at the request and with the permission of the church and the Moore family.

At the specific request of the family, no video or photography of the family arriving or leaving the church will be allowed.

Jodi Moore says she and her family do not want to see members of the press at the church. We appreciate your discretion in this matter.

If you have any questions, please call volunteer PIO Dennis Carlson at 599-9355.

The procession will then travel south on Highway 287 and Interstate 90 to Belgrade for Deputy Moore’s service at the Bridge Church.

The public needs to be aware that there will be significant traffic delays prior to the service as the procession moves through Belgrade at approximately 10:00 am to 11:00 am, especially at Airway Boulevard and Frontage Road.

Following Tuesday’s service, at approximately 2:00 pm, Deputy Moore’s body will be escorted by a large number of law enforcement and fire vehicles from Belgrade on the Frontage Road to Three Forks High School where Moore will lie in state until 5:00 pm.

Also with more than 300 vehicles in the procession on Frontage Road, expect substantial traffic delays at that time. For those who wish to view the procession from the roadside, please park on side roads and not on Frontage Road itself.

In Manhattan, the procession will pass down Main Street. Please park on side streets in Manhattan, leaving Main clear for the procession.

The procession is expected to arrive in Three Forks at approximately 3:00pm. Once again, members of the public who wish to view the procession are encouraged to park on the south side of Highway 287, along the golf course.

Deputy Moore will lie in state at Three Forks High until 5:00pm.
