ATTENTION RETIREES AND WORKING MEMBERS
Per my conversation with the representative of Rickenbacker Air Force Base who we coordinate with the distribution of bicycles through the "Bicycles for Veterans Kids Fund", the Christmas Extravaganza will not be held this year.  This is the event where we donate the bicycles, usually right after Thanksgiving Day.  Normally, they would store, assemble and distribute the bicycles to the kids. This year, I'm informed, this event has been "CANCELLED" due to the hangar where this event is held, is undergoing a complete remodel, upgrade and revamping for our troops, plus the fact of a possible government shutdown. So, as of October 9th, 2018 we "WILL NOT" be taking any donations of bicycles and/or monetary donations for bicycles this season or year. The "Big Brass" at RAFB has decided to "NOT" have extra holiday events for the kids this year but our veterans are still being deployed overseas during the holiday. The personnel that I deal with wish to express their "grateful thanks" for our past participation and will stay in touch in case situations change. Any questions, call Chuck Thompson at 614-535-8052.
