Great weather - mid 70's - but I still burned some calories!!

The guy in the striped shirt with his wife is our State Representative, Barry Moore and his wife, Heather. He's been a regular at our functions and huge supporter, especially since he is a Veteran himself. Bob Cooper is our esteemed Post Commander … (0 comments)
