    It was our privilege to once again participate in the Granger Memorial Day Ceremony. We had nine riders on hand, including a first timer (Doug). The event was well attended by people of all ages and was closed by a beautiful rendition of Taps provided by a volunteer trumpeter from Bugles Across America.

    Thanks again to Don for bringing the flags and to all who attended. What a great way to start this day.
