Last week's actions
Last week we put out flags for Memorial day as our service project. Good news is we have orders exceeding our record of last year. Looking to beat 1,000 flag orders.
Thanks to everyone who braved the weather to join the Melissa-Rotary Memorial Day observance. We gathered at the City of Melissa pavilion out of the rain to remember those who gave it all for our freedom. While the rain kept our Flyover on the ground, many gathered to acknowledge the service of others. A special thanks to Pastor Stacey Piyakhun of Melissa UMC for opening us with prayer. Thanks to Wes Haile for leading us in signing the National Anthem. Thanks to Nick Paul a team and squad leader with the Special Operations’ 3rd Ranger Battalion, serving in Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom, for sharing about Memorial Day.
