Notes:

THERE IS PLENTY OF PARKING AT THE FARM!  GO DIRECTLY TO THE FARM!  There will be private tours of the Eisenhower home, putting contest on Ike's PGA putting green, a Park Ranger presentation, a flag lowering ceremony, and the picnic supper featuring Ike and Mamie's favorite foods.

  1. GUESTS ARE WELCOME:Suggest you bring folding chairs, water, etc. as we are simply not sure how all this is going to happen nor if or where we might be assembled.

  2. RISERS:  In the interest of hassle reduction, we will use the wooden risers.   I can use some help at 1115 (find my truck on Madison or Jefferson Ave).  The best way is going to be to load the four risers onto the dolly and walk it over to the reviewing stand.
