Michigan Heroes Museum Ride

 Michigan Heroes Museum Ride:

The Riders Group organized a trip to the Michigan Heroes Museum in Frankenmuth, Michigan, on Saturday, July 20. Two members from the Mt. Pleasant Riders Group joined us. The museum is a must-visit for all veterans as it showcases veterans from all U.S. conflicts who served as Michigan residents. The museum has excellent displays, and the staff is accommodating, providing detailed explanations about the exhibit's history. In addition to visiting the museum, the group also went to the Davison VFW Post 4087 and had conversations with many members, introducing our Riders Organization.
