Even though the weather didn’t cooperate, not to mention the snow, did not put a dark cloud over the celebration! The dedication moved from the planned outdoor gathering at the landing site, to inside the Friendship Community Center. The volunteers at the Friendship Community Center stepped up and offered their services to not just host the reception as planned , but also the dedication ceremony. We thank them very much for taking on such a large task for Howard and NWORR!!
