May 2007 Car Wash
Several Young Marines arrived bright-eyed and ready to get to work! We had a gorgeous day, perfect for a car wash. Special thanks go out to the Horn Rapids RV Park for allowing us to have our car wash there.
Helping to get this location for us, Mr. Driver also assisted in the washing of the vehicles. SSgt. Bowman was on hand to help as needed.
Getting down to business...OORAH!
Staff member, Mr. Chisholm rode his bike out to help supervise this activity. Did you get your bike washed?
This is what I call "teamwork".
Bring it on..we'll get it done.
Mrs. Bowman, along with the help of a few of her kids, put up a rope to help dry towels at the park. Later, an RV Park employee came and helped by running some towels through their dryers. That sure did help us out!
Mr. Tonda was head Staffer in charge of keeping things running. CO Mr. Carlyle and XO Mr. Haeg both had work commitments. Thanks for stepping up to task Mr. Tonda!
It may be big, it may be blue...but look how great you'll shine when we're done with you!
YM's in action..not even a wet spot left.
Many towels make a dry car..great work Young Marines.
Dedication and attention to detail gets the job done.
Is it laundry day at the RV park? No, just our massive supply of wet towels.
Looks like some friendly chit chat between SSgt. Verduzco and SSgt. Bowman. SSgt. Verduzco spear-headed our Young Marine Car Wash this year. Special thanks go to her for a successful fundraising project. OORAH VERDUZCO!
This is the way we dry the car, dry the car, dry the car (sing it with me), this is the way we dry the car so early in the morning.
Another one almost done.
Gad Zooks Batman! Look what rolled up..no problem. We'll attack this critter in no time.
Special thanks also goes out to Mrs. Driver for all her help in taking care of collecting tickets and donations received during the Car Wash. We appreciate the help of our volunteers..you rock!
Staff members Mrs. Tonda and Mr. Tonda, taking a brief break for a photo. Of course this was after Mrs. Bowman caught Mr. Tonda drooling after watching a Harley slowly motor through the RV Park..can't blame him, it was an awesome day for riding a Harley..maybe another day Mr. Tonda.
Mrs. Everano pitches in to help.
After the Car Wash, Mr. and Mrs. Driver hosted a BBQ and Pool Party for all Young Marines, Staff and family members who wanted to come. The following pictures show everyone had a great time! Thanks for cooking..it was great. An awesome way to end a work day.

Plumlee enjoying the nice cool pool..ahhh, that's nice.
Young Marines getting ready to head out after a very fun and successful day. With all the hard work our Young Marines put into this fundraiser, we can help pay for more activities or equipment for our Unit. OORAH TRI-CITY YOUNG MARINES!
