Greetings RFTW family!
Once again, this year’s Memorial Day was not the same without being with my RFTW family and communities that support our routes. However, RFTW is always in my heart and Memorial Day is still a special day no matter where you are. I know that all of my RFTW family will Never Forget those who have given their all for our country and our freedom. Many of you made your own rides and I appreciate all of you carrying on our mission. I hope you had great trips and made it home safe.
Now that we are in June, I want to remind everyone about our All routes reunion hosted by Midway. It will be here before you know it. I encourage all of you to register and book your hotels ASAP. July 2nd is right around the corner and your early registration will help our planning efforts. We are calling this years reunion in Tennessee the “Sunbright Vets Memorial Tour of Honor” Here is the link on our website: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSfSddvZrKfLGD_n5nMunmyvPROznSUU6srGHcnpcjujUiB24Q/viewform
I was looking at the Midway Hub on the RFTW.US website and saw how the info could be confusing. There is tab that says “tour of Tennessee reunion information”. I will ask for that tab to be hid because that was the information for last years reunion! This years information is under the “Sunbright Vets Memorial Tour of Honor” tab. I apologize for any confusion that has caused. I am really looking forward to seeing everyone there! Our Tennessee State and Assistant Coordinators have put together a great reunion plan for us.
It soon will be time to focus on our plans for our 2022 route. Our Midway ARC, Jerry Wilkins and I will be reaching out to our leadership and support teams in the near future. The first thing we need to do for our planning for 2022 is to make sure we have our teams in place. We truly hope that everyone will be returning to their positions for our 2022 route. We would like to have all positions confirmed ASAP.
I appreciate all of the efforts of our Midway team. I know a lot of work has been done over the last two years and it has been very disappointing that we have not been able to implement our plans for the route. I m so thankful for all of you and hope that you will stick with us another year and make our route the best it can be for 2022.
Hope to see you all at the reunion and may God continue to bless America!
Ken “Six String” Dugas
Midway Route Coordinator
