The 10th annual Support Our Troops Luncheon was held on September 8, 2011 at Windows on The River.
This year, which also marks the 10th Anniversary of the 9-11 attacks, the luncheon had a very special keynote speaker, Mr. David Beamer. Mr. Beamer is the father of Todd Beamer. Todd is the young man who rallied the passengers of United Flight 93 together with his cry "Are you guys ready? Let's roll!"
Mr Beamer had some very harsh warnings for us all - the enemy is out there, infiltrating our way of life.
Bob Hope's nephew (also named Bob Hope) was another speaker.
