Good group of VFW 2667 Riders that rode over to the WW Jones Cookout at the Georgia War Veterans Home in Milledgeville. We visited with the veteran residents, helped with the cookout, and enjoyed a beautiful ride. Great Day. Thanks to American Legion Riders 57 (and a Bomber Girl) for participating as well.
