The iron lung is ready for display by clubs for special events!  Contact PDG Tom DeWitt with a request including a copy of the driver's license of the individual to pick up the trailer, a copy of their insurance card and the location, date, and name of event. Towing vehicle for the trailer requires a 1 7/8 or 2-inch ball and has a plug-in pigtail to hook up lights.  Tom will need a pick up and return date.  Contact information for PDG Tom:  thdewitt@msn.com  or (903) 730-0600

Each community can only have a priority request for the same event once a year, but they can make a request for the same event every year on the off chance that no one else will want the trailer for that same date. (Tyler will not be able to have the trailer on that first Thursday in Dec next year.)
