"Wreaths Across America, Part 2" The wreath program in December was a huge sucess with over 11,000 wreaths placed by over 2500 volunteers. But now those wreaths need to be taken down and the Holly National Cemetery needs your help. Starting at 10AM on aturday, January 24th, volunteers are needed to help remove all these wreaths. Come out and lend a hand if possible.

"Attention Riders!" The MI Freedom Center at the Delta Terminal at Metro has served over 137,000 veterans, dependents, & retirees since opening in 2011. We would request when working on your 2015 ride calendar don't forget Northville High School on May 16th (Armed Forces Day). Meet in the parking lot at 10AM so that a grand entrance can be made of all the riders attending! This event will help provide funds for the Freedom Center so they can continue serving veterans passing thru Metro. For more information contact Chuck at 586-362-5560. Hope to see you there!
