Most of us have causes, charities, or beliefs that
we take to heart. We have many but for now we’ll
mention two that happen to fall on the same day.
The first is national and the latter is local.
This Sunday is National Gold Star Mother’s Day
also called National Gold Star Mother’s and Family’s
Day. This is observed the last Sunday in September
to recognize and honor those who have lost a son
or daughter while serving our country in our Armed
So please remember this Sunday and display our
flag. It is a simple way to show our sorrow over
their loss, our reverence for their resiliency, and
our love of country.
Then we have a local benefit for a family that is
having health issues. They have supported our car
hobby locally for years and need our help. The
Benefit for Sonya Car Show will be held this
Sunday at Credit Island Park in Davenport, Iowa. It
will run from 9:30 am to around 6 pm and admission
is free for spectators.
It will be $10 to enter a show vehicle. We’ve been
told there will be door prizes, bounce houses for
the kids, and a lot more. If you aren’t doing much
Sunday after hanging your flag, stop down.
Tomorrow we will list upcoming events for the rest
of the weekend along with a few distractions.
Comments are always welcome.
