HAPPY VETERANS DAY and a BIG THANK YOU!

FROM JIM MANELLO:
Hi Rod – Glad to see the Thanksgiving tradition continuing at Smithfield Beach. I always enjoyed that get-together. And I wanted to pass along another Thanksgiving run perhaps for people who aren’t convenient to the run at Smithfield Beach.
Thanks,
Jim
