Loudoun Salute for Military, Veterans and Families

Bob will be speaking in support of the Loudoun Salute for Military, Veterans and Families to be held 9/20/15 at Stone Bridge HS in Ashburn (see atch Flyer).  The purpose of my presentation is both to solicit participation by your members and the Rotary (can provide a Partner Display Table at the event) and also the Rotary’s consideration of financial support (100% of funds collected go to our Patriotic and Needy Veterans/Families programs).
