TECUMSEH – About 150 motorcycles from the Nebraska Riders group accompanied a Vietnam veterans tour bus to Tecumseh Saturday on a visit to Bill and Carla Montz’s motorcycle museum.
Their arrival was an hour later than expected, but the “Thank You Veterans” sign was ready above Highway 50. Clay Street on the way to the museum was also lined with flags.
As the entourage came downtown to the Courthouse Square, they were able to view the display of 600 plus veterans’ flags around the courthouse.
After a tour of the museum, the veterans were treated to a free lunch by Scotty’s Catering and paid for by Tecumseh Economic Development. The escort riders were responsible for their own lunch.
The VFW bus was in Tecumseh to offer replacement dog tags for those that wanted them.
Tecumseh’s Farmers Market people were on the north side of the square for anyone wanting to purchase pies and other baked goods, plus fresh vegetables.
Ramsey’s was open for viewing the veteran’s photos, the Oldfield exhibit was on display and the Johnson County Museum was open and offered a “Welcome to Tecumseh” presence.
The bus left Tecumseh at 2 p.m. to head back to Lincoln.
