Rolling Thunder Chapter 4 Celebrates The 16th Annual Dinner of Hope December 8th at VFW on Witham

On quick glance, you see black vests, patches, Harley's and beards on most of the members.  A quick peek behind the initial glimpse though and you're going to find a group of people dedicated to serving veterans, advocating for POW and MIA members of the military and issues facing them and their families.  As you'll hear in a short minute here in the video, Rolling Thunder isn't about just having another patch on a vest, it's about a commitment to serving.



Luckily for us here at Positively Muskegon, Rolling Thunder Chapter 4 of Michigan is no stranger to us.  We've been working with them for years to show you the incredible D-Day event they produce down at the LST-393 located at the Mart-Dock in Downtown Muskegon.  It's still a growing event and they add more splendor and reflection year after year.  However, their work isn't just one event yearly.  They work hard to represent their organization in parades, expos, and other events where they can spread the message advocating for those who have served as well as those who have yet to come home.

They host events too!  Great things to help raise a few bucks for the club as well as the work they do. One that's coming up in the Spring is a pool tournament that you can use anything except a pool cue in it!  Stay tuned for details on that!  But the event that's coming up isn't about raising money  as much as it is raising a little goodwill and spirits of vet's and the community together.

For 16 years now, Rolling Thunder has put on The Dinner of Hope.  It's a holiday meal served buffet style for anyone wanting or needing to share the holiday spirit with veterans and families.  Now, they won't turn down a financial hand if you have the ability to pay, but..if you are not, no one will be turned away from a hot meal with all the fixin's and some good down home community fellowship as we draw closer to the Holiday's.  Goodwill to all is what this time of year is about and Rolling Thunder is all about building community and awareness for their cause so, save the date!  Saturday December 8th from 12n-3p.  The dinner will be held at the VFW in North Muskegon at the corner of Witham and Dykstra,

Al Thompson from Rolling Thunder got a hold of me originally and Randy Clapper grabbed center stage to talk about the group and the dinner.  Take a listen.



The door is open for you Saturday to learn a little more about Rolling Thunder, thank some Veterans who were willing to give all and if you need a hot and hearty meal...there will be one waiting.  The men and women of Rolling Thunder are one of those groups who do an awful lot "under the radar" for those who might otherwise go forgotten. Stop out and see them Saturday or visit their site to learn more!  Thanks so much to them for all they do!!
