Mt. Vernon Foster Grandparents volunteer at "Run to the Wall"
On May 24, several hundred motorcyclists from around the country stopped in Mt. Vernon for lunch and refueling. These riders were participating in the “Run to Wall” which occurs every May. These riders travel from California to Washington D.C. each year to give their respects to the fallen veterans at the Memorial Wall.
When the riders stop over in Mt. Vernon, Jean Domingez, Foster Grandparent Volunteer, coordinates their lunch, fueling, and break and has done so for over 23 years. For the past several years, the Foster Grandparent Volunteers have come out to help Jean by handing out supplies, preparing meals, and doing anything that is needed to assist. The riders appreciate all that is given to them and the hugs and kind words from the volunteers. A special thank you to volunteers, Delores Downey, Lou Horn, Barb Miller, Margie DeMent, Lee Stowers, Lois Hahn, Earleen Apgar, Peggy Lott, Gene Shirley and Lula Mae Morris for your help. Also huge kudos to Jean Domingez for a job well done!
