Tulip Festival May 1- 4th Pella Iowa

Thursday, May 9th, 2013



Four of our Northern Illinois couples braved the elements to participate in the caravan to and the Tulip Festival in Pella, Iowa.  John Green,from the Lincolnland Unit, organized and hosted the caravan/rally. Unfortunately, one of the Lincolnland trailers was destroyed on the way to the rally. Luckily, Bob and Linda Hattan had only minor personal injuries. Our campers got 4 inches of snow during the first days of the rally, but that could not dissuade the tulips from 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.
