It was a mighty hot one today but we had a nice turnout of 12 & 1/2 AUS/PGR members standing tall for Mr. Micheal (Mike) Hyde, US Army Veteran. I say 1/2 because my 7 year-old granddaughter Lauren was in attendance with us, handing out cold water and standing for a short while on the flag line.

Don set up a number of extra flags to accompany our flag-line members and the visual was beautiful. One woman in particular stopped in her tracks to exclaim how beautiful it looked. A number of people walking in to the service voiced their thanks to us for being there and for what we do. My thanks to all of you who took time out of your day to honor Mike Hyde and please know you do make a difference!
