Marching to the Beat

A number of the members joined in for the Winter Carnival parade. It was not the warmest of days, but certainly not the coldest. We were able to bring the 1941 Plymouth Staff car, complete with heater, as well. It was a great way to get the word out about the CAF, as we handed out hundreds of leaflets with information about the museum. Thanks to all who attended, all of whom willing dressed the part! If you're interested in participating, talk with Bill Atchison in the Motor Pool. He already has half a dozen appearances lined up for the year!

(Dressed for the weather, a number of reenactors joined us for the parade. We all have a similar direction... preservation of history, and education.)
