Thunder Over Michigan Air Show
David Lincicome will be leading the charge for our parking project at the Willow Run Airport. It will be the weekend of 3-4 August. As in the past the Association will receive funds for our coffers in accordance to the number of volunteers we have working the parking concession. We have done well in the past several years.
The more volunteers we have, the more money we make. You can work both days or just one and get to see the air show for free. This year will feature the Blue Angels, so the crowds will be big. Workers will be provided with lunch and receive their choice of a free 425th Association hat, T-shirt or license plate. For more details or to volunteer contact David Lincicome at email@example.com or call him at (810) 560-4665.
Fifth Annual Regimental Rendezvous
August 24th is the Regimental Rendezvous. We are changing the format this year. We are partnering with the Michigan Ranger Base, part of the Ranger Association. They call it their Shoot, Eat, and Drink event. We will meet at their Patrol Base at “Winnie Acres” in Marine City.
They have ranges for both rifle and pistol and a converted barn as a banquet hall loaded with Ranger memorabilia. We will publish more details at a later date.
425th Regimental Association Reunion Dinner
Out annual Reunion Dinner will be held at the Bakers of Milford on October 5th. This is a new venue that is more centrally located for the Association membership. More details will be published in a separate letter. This is intended to give our spouses an opportunity to join with us to share in the camaraderie of our history. We will have a guest speaker and install our new officers.
Each month the Michigan Ranger Base hosts a luncheon in different locations around the state. These are announced in newsletters, email blasts, and on Facebook.
