The opening on Thursday, December 4 was welll attended by the general public. The Woodchucks display stood proud among the other fine art being displayed.

thumb CollageI was very lucky to be chosen to go on the Nevada Honor Flight to Washington DC along with 32 other veterans.  There were about 23 WW11 vets, 6 from Korea and the rest from Vietnam,  one vet was99.  We were treated like rock stars everywhere we went.  We left on a Thursday and returned on Sunday.  It was a great trip and thanks to all the people that helped to put this together, there was 12 guardians to help with the people that need assistance and everyone had a wonderful time.  I hope everyone enjoys these pictures.
