Operation Aces HIgh: Volunteers Needed and Fun to Be Had

Aces High is June 3rd. We are planning to have over 200 motorcycles, a big BBQ, prizes and another chance to send our troops another message via pictures and video. Don't miss out on a chance to have some great times, great memories and great service to our wounded.

Message from the Committee:

Dear Angels,

We are in need of angels to fill some volunteer spots for our Poker Run fundraiser for transitional backpacks for wounded.

We are also in need of cookies/brownies/bars to serve with the BBQ, Beans, and potatoe chips which have been donated for riders after the Poker Run. if you can help please bring 2-3 dozen on a disposable plate to American Legion Post #370 7500 W. 75th St. by 3:00 PM on June 3rd. The volunteer spots are below:


8:00 (9:30 possibly)- 1:00 PM- Two dealers for the Lawrence stop which is the first stop on the run. The advantage to this stop is the riders should be through by 1:00 PM or earlier, you would need to be at the American Legion in Lawrence by 9:30, one of the volunteers would need to return to ALR #370 to return the 2nd copy of what cards have been drawn. Ronda is offering another training session for dealers at 11:00 AM on June 2nd at ALR post #370 in addition to being able to train the morning of the run at 8:00 AM.

8:45-11:15- 1 volunteer to sell 50/50 tickets at ALR post #370 in Overland Park
2:00-5:00- 1 volunteer to sell 50/50 tickets at ALR Post #370 in Overland Park
1:45-5:00- 1 dealer to assist with last drawing at ALR Post #370 in Overland Park

We appreciate your help in making this event a success, we are anticipating 200 riders in our event, pray for good weather.

I am already committed to the Ozawkie, Kansas Post out near Perry Lake and I'll be taking a ton of cookies. With at least 200 bikers, we will raise some great funds for our wounded.

Be there or be square.

- May no soldier go unloved
