Home of the original Texas mesquite-broiled
steak. 50’s old school flame grilled steaks are the
favorite, but pork chops, salmon, and burgers are
available. We’ll need a count at the May meeting,
or call Gary Page (972/467-6429) to let me know
you are coming.

The upcoming stroll is actually a Spring Staycation Tour. One full day of country driving,
fellowship, and remembering our military because Saturday, May 19 commemorates: Armed
Forces Day This is a day to salute all of the men and women in all branches of military, who
protect you and our country. They can be called upon at a moment's notice to perform risky
and perilous missions for freedom and country. They train diligently both physically and
mentally, so they will be prepared to prevail in any mission they face.

Just how did it all begin? Well, each branch of the military had their own day of celebration.
But, on August 31, 1949, then Secretary of Defense Louis Johnson announced the creation of
Armed Forces Day. President Harry Truman also announced the holiday in a presidential
proclamation on February 20, 1950. All branches of the military were asked to celebrate on
this day and they complied on the first Armed Forces Day which was held the following year on
May 20, 1950. From there on, it has always been celebrated on the third Saturday of May. So
please join us - and we want to show the Red, White, and Blue by displaying Old Glory on our
cars and if you are retired military please wear any military caps, badges, jackets, etc that you
may have.

Plans for the day include: Coffee and donuts at the starting location: Divine Peace Church -
1346 Pleasant Valley Rd. Garland, TX. Gather at 9:00 a.m. We should leave at about 9:30 a.m.
There is plenty of room for trucks & trailers for those coming from a distance. We will travel
thru Garland, Sachse, and Wylie on our way to the Military Heritage Collection (FUBAR) in
Neveda, TX. We will eat lunch there. For those who don't want to pack a lunch to bring along
we will be stopping at a bbq place in Lavon for you to pick up something. After spending time
visiting the  military exhibit, we will head thru backroads to Rockwall to enjoy ice cream there
at the church at 305 S. Fannin St., which is just off the square. Rockwall will be celebrating
their Founders Day and we may be listed on their activities as a " car show " while we're there
having ice cream and relaxing from driving. About 4:00 p.m. we will head back to Garland thru
Rowlett and will hopefully stop at the Sonic on Hwy 66 in Rowlett for a photo shoot! It will
depend on how busy they are when we arrive. Now here's one more thing about the day : We
will be having a video made of our trip by Branded Videos. Some of the shots might be made
using a drone with camera mounted on it !! HOW COOL ! Hope we have a good turnout for
our " Staycation " on May 19. I have heard there are other activities going on that same
weekend that are T-related, but for those of you who have that day open, we hope you can
join us

P.S. - Let's all pray for nice weather that day !!! - Gary Hengst ( Staycation/Stroll coordinator )
