Donald Daily: Loss of Rally is shame
November 12, 2009
What a shame for the Winter Park-Fraser Valley Chamber of Commerce (WPFVCC) president in his comments to derail the Veterans/Bike Rally. Especially when so much good is being done by the Rally’s organizers to honor those who are serving, or have served in the United States Armed Forces. Perhaps the WPFVCC President wants to cater to the wine and cheese, luxury vehicle driving crowd.
The Veterans/Bike Rally is an event to look forward to, worthy of the cause. In Grand County, there are no more active service organizations hosting events, such as The American Legion, Disabled American Veterans, Veterans of Foreign Wars and the like. However, there are two parades in which Veterans can participate: Grand Lake’s Memorial Day Parade and Granby’s Fourth of July Parade. At least their Chamber of Commerces are supportive. Why can’t WPFVCC do the same?
