  • The Wheelmen send a big thanks to Ed Duncan for his continued support and for hosting the June cookout. THANKS ED!!!

Tee Shirts

Thanks to Kevin McNair for coordinating the purchase of WW T-shirts. If you did not place an order on the first go around, hopefully we will be able to do a second purchase later this summer. The T-Shirts came in many colors and have wonderful WW art work on them. $15.00 each was a great price also.
