The high wind and cool did not discourage our members from getting out today. We had 16, including one first mission and one cage. We stood tall for Jimmy Wade and was sincerely thanked by his daughter and family for being there to honor him.
Thanks to Frank for wrangling the flags and water.
Hope all made it home safely…………
