    Flag Wrangler: Don Ferguson

    Please try to attend this mission to honor another who fought bravely in the defense of freedom so many years ago.


    The attendance was excellent with riders from CenTex and Austin totaling 16. Had one 1st Mission Rider. Thanks again to Don Ferguson for handling the Flag Wrangling duties! All hands did a superb job honoring Raymond Montgomery. His family expressed their sincere appreciation for the great turnout. A shout out also to Burnet County road maintenance crews for the last minute blading of County Road 218A leading to the cemetery. Just thankful they didn't lay down fresh asphaltic emulsion oil…
