All the TR kids with the pumped up kicks – spring has sprung, along with storm season, and we’ve got some service projects popping up in Region 6 this May: 

Saturday, May 3 in Moore, Oklahoma: We‘re heading back to Moore and the Orr Family Farm. We helped the Orrs rebuild during Operation: Starting Gun, and they’ve since become good friends and generous supporters. We’ve got a full weekend of camping and construction planned, while the Triple G Smokers will be providing super delicious BBQ.

If you’re looking to spend some quality time with your TR family and help those who made it possible for us to serve others, click here to confirm your attendance. *Please note, this event is not eligible for mileage reimbursement, but camping and chow will be covered.

Saturday, May 10 in New Orleans, Louisiana: Region 6 is hosting a special TR 101 event in The Big Easy. We’ll have a morning briefing on TR basics and spend the afternoon getting sweaty while tackling some much needed demo work for a local VFW hall. We’ll even buy you lunch!
