Had a great fundraiser last night. Particularly pleased that Sheriff Glanz and County Treasurer Dennis Semler could join us.
It was an honor to be with Ron Howell, at the Folds of Honor's Veterans Cottage Dedication at Skiatook Lake on May 26, 2013. Major Dan Rooney, the founder of the Folds of Honor Foundation and a former F-16 pilot in the Oklahoma Air National Guard was also on hand to help Ron dedicate the cottage, which is to be used, free of charge, to returning veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
