Lincolnland Caravan to, and Rally at. Pella, IA Tulip Festival – May 1st – 4th

Sunday, May 6th, 2012



Four of our Northern Illinois couples braved the elements to participate in the caravan to and Tulip Festival caravan in Pella Iowa. John Green from the Lincolnland Unit organized and hosted the rally. One of the Lincolnland trailers was destroyed on the way to the rally. Luckily, Bob and Linda Hattan had only minor personal injuries. We got 4 inches of snow the first days of the rally, but that could not dissuade the tulips coming forth through the snow. The Pella people gave 110% dressing in costumes and dancing. Confronting the snow and rain made this a once in a lifetime experience.
