Author Kristine Wood to share her “Run for the Wall” experiences at the April Cypress Chamber Networking Breakfast

Author Kristine Wood will be the guest speaker at the Cypress Chamber of Commerce Networking Breakfast Tuesday, April 9, 2019 at the Residence Inn by Marriott (4931 Katella Avenue, Los Alamitos) at 7:30 a.m.

Kristine Wood and her husband, longtime Cypress Dentist Don Wood, are a part of a group of motorcycle riders who travel each year, as part of an organized group, to the Viet Nam Memorial in Washington DC to honor the veterans who served. Hundreds of bikers across the United States arrive in DC over Memorial Day weekend to take part in the Run for the Wall event.

Kristine joined with a professional photographer and compiled a book of her experiences over the past 3-4 years doing this Run for the Wall ride and will share her many stories that went into her book. The book, Run for the Wall – A Journey to the Vietnam Memorial, explains the purpose of the event, the message and the patriotism demonstrated through photos and brief narration.

Kristine’s book will also be available for sale at the breakfast. Reservations are suggested for the monthly breakfasts and can be made directly on the Cypress Chamber website at cypresschamber.org. For more information call 714 484-6015. Cost of the breakfast is $20 in advance or $25 for nonmembers or those who do not register in advance.

The Chamber breakfasts, which are open to the public, are held on the second Tuesday of every month.
