  • Pre Power Tour Meet and Greet

    I did not want to hijack Linda's post for the VA Home visit so this is just a reminder that there will be a meet and greet cruise-in on June 4th from 5:00 to 8:00 PM at the Okoboji Grill, 1407 W 19th St. S, Newton, IA 50208.

    As an annual tradition (started by Forum Freaks), there will be a fund raiser for a veteran's organization. This year donations will be given to Honor Flight. If you are not familiar with Honor Flight, they send World War II veterans to Washington DC to see the World War II memorial and as many other veterans memorials as possible in one day. Little time remains for most of them so the more money that can be raised, the more veterans can make the trip. All proceeds will go directly to Honor Flight with no administrative fees going to anyone!! Hope to see you there with open wallets and purses!!!!

    If you would like to know more about Honor Flight visit their website: http://www.honorflight.org

    Thank you for this post Jim
    It is of great pleasure to see the brave men of WWII going to see the memorials in their honor and meeting with other service men and women. Too many times these folks are only remembered and shown appreciation after their lives have ended. Thank you to all those who have served our country the United States of America.

                              Hey Gang,

                              Daphne and I might be able to make this, but I'm not sure yet. I'll keep you posted.

                              We are also talking about doing a FF meeting on Day One (Saturday) so I can give you guys some cards, decals, etc. I'll keep you posted on that as well.
