Mims Christmas Parade

Ken and supporters participated in the Mims Christmas parade on December 3.  The group walked the entire route while handing out candy and, in Ken’s case, shaking hands with supporters all along the way.   What a great group of people to turn out for the parade!  Ken’s group handed out over 15 pounds of candy! While Little Miss Mims Mullet Maiden did not ride with Ken in this parade, he did get to have a photo taken with her.

Veteran’s Day Parade – 2011

Ken and a group of supporters entered the Melbourne Veteran’s Day Parade to support local vets past-present-future.  The Vote Rhoden group included a US Army Vet from the 1/7 3rd Infantry “Marne” Division and some civilian supporters.

There were vets old and young all along the parade route along with their families.  The kids especially enjoyed all 15 pounds of candy the group handed out along the New Haven and Oak Street route.  Thank you to Honor America for organizing such a great event.  Freedom is not free and while we should all be proud Americans – we should be extraordinarily proud of our Veterans.  Thank you for your service and sacrifice.

Ken Visits Canaveral Air Station in Guided Tour

Ken was invited to tour the Canaveral Air Station along with members of the Cape Kennedy Corvette Club.  The visit this morning was both exciting and educational.  The group saw several areas including a block house,  displays on the Monkeynauts & AstroChimps, various rockets, and the beautiful lighthouse.  Next time you see Ken, ask him about this trip!
