The COMM gets a Golf Cart

Several weeks ago, I sent out an email to our museum friends. I was looking for a golf cart to use for museum events. I received a few calls asking for information and our price range.
Last week I received a call from Iris Foster-DeNieuwe (pictured below with museum curator Bob Traphagan). A retired colonel in the Illinois Army National Guard and is now a legislative liaison for the VFW, the District 11 Commander and a member of Post 3764.
She asked if we were still looking for a golf cart. I told her yes. We made an appointment to meet and see the cart on Monday March 6. I met her at the VFW HQs in downtown Columbus at 35 E. Chestnut Street.  We drove over to a storage facility to see the cart.
It was a little dusty, but to me it was a beauty. Iris asked what I thought and all I could say was “How much?” She said you’re a 501 C 3 right? I said yes. She said it’s yours. WOW! I was also given the trailer. What a blessing it is to have friends like Iris and the VFW. Iris also held a District meeting here at the museum in August of 2022 to support the museum.
So, the two old adages are true. “It’s better to be lucky than good” and “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know”. Thanks to Iris and the VFW of Ohio Charities.
