Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall stops in Apopka on Veterans Day
A symbol of remembrance has made Central Florida its home this week. The Vietnam Traveling Memorial Wall is in Apopka, allowing neighbors to remember the lives lost in battle. Photographer Mike Olendorff shows the wall is a reminder of the sacrifices made during the war.

The Bahia Shrine is moving into a new building in 2017. For more information on our new home call 407-660-8811.
We hope that Unit Members will make every effort to attend as many activities as possible. Camaraderie, Iron Horse Unit representation, Bahia Shrine pride and support for the Children’s Hospitals are our main priorities. However, we understand that there are commitments such as family, business, or other personal situations that may take precedence. So long as you show support for the other members, maintain enthusiasm for the Unit and participate when able, you'll always be a member of the Iron Horse Family.
As a premier unit of the Bahia Shrine, we take pride in our riding and how we look. Each Unit Member should be smartly dressed according to the activity (is communicated ahead of time or see by-laws). Each member of the unit is responsible for purchasing his own uniform which is worn in all parades, competitions and ceremonials. Upon joining the unit, you will be provided with a list of items available.
The unit meets the Fourth Tuesday around 6:30 PM for fellowship and dinner. Our monthly business meeting follows at 7:30 PM. Up-coming meeting locations are communicated in advance and on website.
While we are a motorcycle unit and our members enjoy riding their own motorcycles, you are not required to have one in order to be a Dual member of the Unit. However, you must possess a valid motorcycle endorsement on your license.
Initiation is $75 for the first year and includes a T-Shirt. Full Iron Horse members pay annual dues to the unit of $50 and Dual membership is $30.
To join the Iron Horse Unit you first must be a member of the Bahia Shrine. After joining the Shrine, it's just a matter of filling out a unit application, attending one of our regular monthly business meetings and be voted in by the unit members. If you would like some more information about joining the Iron Horse Unit, contact one of the Officers or go to WWW.IRONHORSEUNIT.COM.
