Here are some pictures of the Veterans Day parade today. You couldn’t have asked for weather nicer than today. Everyone met at the Cross’ to unload and have coffee and donuts, brought by the Decker’s. We had 14 members present and 8 vehicles plus the bomb grill. Afterwards we displayed our vehicles in the middle of Douglas in front of Century II where they had singing and messages from the Mayor and others. Diane Warren noticed they didn’t have the flags at half staff, so she told an official and they told the mayor. By golly, the flags were changed. Good show!
What a beautiful day for a parade. We had six vehicles and 12 people in the Arkalalah parade in Arkansas City. Our members were Dave Billings, Crosses, Deckers, Joe Rankin, and Jim Lynne. The parade was about 2 to 3 hours long and Linda and Dave Billings, family and friends provided BBQ ribs and brisket, along with drinks and chips. What great hosts. Thanks everyone!
