Youngest members of the Freedom Ride, Simon Peter, Rose-Mary with Fudge the rabbit, and Daphne Kathryn Blake enjoyed the weekend. Their Older sister, Daisy Helen was not on the Freedom Ride but joined the event later. The youngest sister Violet Theresa was born a few days after the weekend event.
Slide one: Biddeford Fire Department honored the group as it passed. Slide two: Main Street Saco had many displaying their American Flags Slide three: Old Orchard Beach Town Hall in sight. No one outside, they were part of the Freedom Ride. Thank you Old Orchard Beach.
Top Sky Eagle blessed the landing area for a safe landing of the Huey and crew. While he was doing the blessing, an Eagle made an appearance. This was something you had to see to believe for many. The Huey landed shortly after the blessing.
At the end of the Freedom Ride, many went to see the IASAR Huey. Thank you Charlie Walker and crew from Indiana Air Search A Rescue bringing us some of our history back to Maine for us to see from Indiana. This Huey served in the Maine National Guard as well as Vietnam.
