Welcome back party was a blast!

We all had a great time celebrating the safe return of the Delta Company and Wolfy from Iraq. The food was great and the band was awesome. The dance floor was full from the time the band started until they quit. One of the guys couldn't join us and he was sorely missed. He missed one heck of a party. We might have to plan another one just so he can participate. Some of these guys were on their third tour. We're hoping they are all home to stay. They served their country well. Remember our troops. They are spending their holidays stuck in the desert fighting for our country. Pray for them and send Christmas cards. Be there for the family members who are missing their loved ones. God Bless them all and God Bless America.

Veterans Day BBQ Benefit

Our Veterans Day BBQ was a huge success. We actually ran out of food for the first time. The support from the community was overwhelming. Our mural has been restored to it's original beauty, if not even better and the security camera has been installed. Funds from the BBQ made a huge dent in the costs incurred for the restoration. The parade was the best one ever and there was more support from the community for it than I have ever seen. I don't know if the Fort Hood incident or the newspaper article had anything to do with it but I hope this kind of support for our troops continues. Speaking of troops. Delta Company and Wolfy are home safe and sound. We are having a welcome back party on Saturday November 21st with a BBQ and live music with the Bomb Shell Bully's. The Party starts at 3:00 p.m.
