A Special Day for our Veterans....
Monday the Princess & I cruised 20 miles south to Fredericksburg, VA and the Golden Corral Restaurant. The Fredericksburg Classic and Muscle Car Club partners with Tony, the manager of Golden Corral, to provide a display of special cars to enhance the Veterans experience while they dine at Golden Corral. As does many restaurants, Golden Corral offers Veterans a free meal on Veterans Day. It is a small but moving way to say thank you for your service to the many local Veterans. Tony also gave free meals to those that brought their special cars….that was a classy touch! You can read more about Golden Corral’s program at; http://www.goldencorral.com/military/
There were about 20 cars in the display that the cruisers brought out to share. Since parking space is limited 20 cars is just about right. The day was sunny but a little chilly….it IS November after all! The club arranged for our friend Coach, to DJ and for Butterfli the clown to paint faces on the kids. I think some of the “kids” were a little….tall. I wonder if they go trick or treating too….hmmmm The fellowship at these kinds of events is wonderful….no competition, no stress…just be by your vehicle so the customers and spectators can interact with you. It’s a fun time sharing your hot rod passion and another way to say ‘Thank You’ to our Veterans. I know everyone enjoyed the day….giving back….I love this hobby.
