The DAV will be having a fundraiser to raise money for the maintenance of their van fleet, and the purchase of new vans. The event is the “Forget Me Not Drive”, and will be taking place at several local Walmart stores. The event is this weekend, Friday June 8th & Saturday June 9th. Time is from 9am to 1pm each day. The drive is taking place at several Springfield Walmarts, as well the Walmart in Nixa, Marshfield, and Orschlen Farm Supply in Marshfield.

I emailed the DAV’s new CDR, CDR Bob Clayton, to get clarification on which weekend the Forget Me Not Drive will be held. If you would like to volunteer to help with the drive, please contact CDR Clayton by phone: (417) 862-3910, or by email at:

Since the DAV is giving us a really great rate to use their facilities for our meeting, we should take this opportunity to help the DAV out, to replay their generosity to the club!
