We went to a flag burning ceremony that was put on by the boy scouts tonight. It was quite impressive and inspirational. They showed us how to dispose of a damaged flag. Brenda and Chuck were there with the CERT group.

Ice Cream Party

We had a great day and a fun get-together at our annual ice cream social and cook-out on Sunday. I think everyone had a good gab time and plenty to eat, as we had hamburgers, cooked by Jason on the bomb grill, salads, baked beans, cake, cookies, brownies and homemade ice cream. Yum! Thanks to all for bringing everything. Twenty members attended: Judy and Gary Cross, Chuck and Brenda Loper, Jason, Sharon, Katelynn and Cooper Smith, John and Pauline Cravens, Loren and Jackie Anthony, Doug Odom, Kendall and Janice Lundy, Jim and Stephanie Lynne, Dave Shultz, Ron and Marilyn Decker. Luckily, the rain happened after everyone had left and everything was cleaned up.

Pictures attached. Also, thanks to Stephanie for taking pictures along with Judy.

35th Annual MVPA International Convention

We sure enjoyed the 35th Annual MVPA International Convention in Topeka. The Topeka Rolling Thunder MVPA Chapter were great hosts. We went on some great tours and the auction and spaghetti dinner and award’s banquet were fantastic. We also had BBQ at the zoo one night. There were 250 vendors with all sorts of parts and other artifacts. There were more than 200 vehicles on display. In our chapter, Jim Christy got a "Silver Award" for his Harley WWII military motorcycle. Pictures are attached. Allan Wing, a past member, won silver for his WWII half track.

Members that attended the convention were: Ron and Marilyn Decker, Jim Christy, Greg Hoopes, Jim Lynne, Dave Billings, Kendall Lundy and Sons, Gary and Carol Allen, Judy and Gary Cross, Jason, Sharon Smith and Family, Gary and Mary McBeath, David Cross, Larry Menestrina, and John Cravens.

The MVPA board and Administration staff, Kay, Tracey and Susan, should be commended for all they did in helping everyone and just being there for us.
