Since the 4th of July, 2011, was on a Monday this year, the Idiots Club decided to celebrate the Nation’s Birthday Sunday, July 3rd. Any day you can express your freedom and honor the United States is a very good reason to party and have fun.
Besides the Idiot’s Club Celebration several other things took place that day. We had a “Fly Over” performed by the Commemorative Air Force – Rio Grande Valley Wing (www.rgvwingcaf.com) which is always a crowd pleaser. The aircraft did a couple of low level passes and received a thunderous applause and cheering from the all of the Idiots at “Boomies” (www.boomerangbillysbeachbar.com) as well as the crowds on the beach.
The Idiot’s Club has joined with the American Military Support group (located nearby in the Harlingen, Texas). The purpose of the group is to collect money and items to send to our active Military Personnel who live in the Rio Grande Valley and are currently stationed overseas. Please visit their Web Site at www.americanmilitarysupport.com.
Elsewhere on our Web Site is related information about the group and, as a side note, it cost them $3,000 dollars to mail 250 “care packages” which they call “Quality Of Life” packages, so any donations you would like to make to them is greatly appreciated. If possible, add a notation that you are an Idiot Club member so they know that we are behind their effort as well.
