Both are dedicated to encouraging a better understanding and appreciation of America, and to help foster patriotism among today’s youth
Big wedding at Syringa last week. Lots of Kamiah Simmons and Beckmans all got together to celebrate the joining of Megan Beckman and Lucas Wooden, there at Jackson’s beautiful setting in Syringa.
