June 29 Church Night in Madrid 
Red Cross Swimming 10:15 to 10:55AM @ Boone Municipal Pool- 9:30AM meet at bus barn to leave
INHF (Iowa Natural Heritage Foundation)- CANCELED is plan to host the lunch at noon at one of the shelters along the High Trestle Trail Bridge for Michael Buckley of Hereford, Arizona
The Warrior Expedition is a project dedicated to helping combat veterans transitioning from their wartime experiences through long-distance outdoor experiences. At the beginning of June, five veterans departed on bike from Washington D.C.  bound for Washington state via the Great American Rail-Trail. As you may know, the Great American Rail-Trail will come directly through Iowa and the riders will be making their way across our state throughout the next week or so!
Michael Buckley of Hereford, Arizona served in the United States Army from 1985-2017 and completed deployments to Saudi Arabia, Afghanistan and Iraq. We will gather for lunch along the trail to greet Mike and hear more about his journey along the Great American Rail-Trail. Mike is currently travelling through Illinois and estimates that he will be able to make it to central Iowa
