9 PGR braved the super cold morning, WELL, maybe It was not a typical winter day. 70’s in Dec. was pretty nice. Even warm actually. Organizers wanted our presents to be a surprise so we waited in a parking lot unseen by them till they came around the corner & saw our big flags. We, along with the PPD, then led the family to the surprise event.
Rounding the corner of their street, the family was greeted by hundreds of well wishers cheering & waving American flags. What a site. We then parked & joined the ceremony. 2 of our members even held the ribbon that was cut by William M. presenting he & his family their new home.
How awesome it is to be able to be a part of such a wonderful event.
PS KVEU videoed event.
