So, after finishing up, we rode for barbecue at the
Cajun Pig Restaurant in Chimney Rock Village.

Pot Luck

Assistant Chapter Directors Bill and Gail Roland sponsored
this pot luck with the red, white, and blue Memorial Day theme.

Teresa, whose picture I unfortunately didn't get, led the group
in a sponge toss game for prizes and Memorial Day facts.
Did you know, for example, that Memorial Day was officially
proclaimed on 5 May 1868? You can learn more about the history and
observance of Memorial day at these web sites and meny others.
