July Newsletter Notes


This has been a very busy month for the Riders. Thanks to all who turned out to lend a hand at all of the events. Memorial Day flag placements went very smoothly.  Several of our Riders participated in the Kansas Legacy Run and all had a great time. Perhaps more of us should consider riding in this very worthwhile run. We are deeply honored to be able to be a part of the repatriation ceremony for WW II pilot John Dean Armstrong. Being a part of these ceremonies is a very emotional experience.

Mak, Bruce, and Bud made the front page of the Hutch News this morning with their flag folding presentation at Mennonite Manor. Phil assisted Mak and Bruce with the flag folding at Brookdale. They and others have done these flag folding presentations at Rest Homes and Schools. These presentations have always been very well received. A special thanks to all who participate in these presentations. Our members continuously represent us well to the community.

Thank The Lord for the safe return of our members who were on vacations. The world out there is not always a safe place for those of us who travel on two (3) wheels.

The Third Annual Wounded Vet Run is very special for us this year. This year’s Honoree is our own Post Commander and Rider member Jeremy Ehart. The ride takes place June 24 starting at our Post.

Ride safe and “Keep the Shiny Side Up”.
