Back Road Beauty

Donners honored at 35th Annual Big Event

It started with George Boutwell’s event program front cover – a depiction of a back road with red classic truck, blue bonnets, both set off by the yellow caliche – capturing the theme “Traveling the back roads,” perfectly.

National Vietnam War Veterans Day honors the men and women who served and sacrificed during the longest conflict in United States history. In 2017, U.S. Sens.

President Donald Trump signed the Vietnam War Veterans Day Act on March 28, 2017, calling for U.S. flags to be flown on March 29 for those who served.
