Ernie Whiting and his wife, Jan, joined the club and he shared information about the Freedom Rock in Grandview. They left there and went to Grandview to see the Rock and Ernie joined them to talk more about the Veterans Memorial, which they found very interesting.

The club then drove to the Port Louisa Conservation Building. From there they had a delicious lunch at Odessa Grille and enjoyed the beautiful view of the lake.
