Each year, for the past 25 years, the Mid-Continent Library Genealogy Center has put on a program called the Kansas City Veterans Salute.  This "thank you for your service" homage to area military veterans includes various organizations such as: VFW, Marine Corps League, various reenact-or groups, etc.  The VFW provides a military band, Hy-Vee catering provides a free lunch, and our group, KCMCC, provides collector displays.  

 

The Kansas City Military Collector Club (KCMCC) has participated in this excellent program for years and is proud to help support the Veterans Salute.  Below are some of the displays that we put on this weekend.

More club displays.  Each club member designs and sets up their own display.  Some dress in the mode of a reenactor and some just wear our club vest.

Really, really, really nice displays!  I don't think it could get any better.  If I was around the area I certainly would've loved seeing all of it.  GREAT JOB!
