Shriners Food Caravan

When I was driving back to Seattle, between Canby and Wilsonville, Oregon, I saw on I-5 a line of vehicles with flashing lights. Each had a sign but they were hard to read so I had to find one that I could figure out what was going on. I saw signs on some motorcycles that said Shriners. I finally found a sign that I could read that said Food Caravan. It was some kind of fund raising activity for a Shriner's children's hospital. The Shriners do important work to help children and other worthy causes for communities. The sign said to join the caravan so I did for a few miles. After all, my dad was a Shriner, a 32nd degree Mason, and State Commander of the VFW in Montana so I joined it and thought of my dad.
