October November 2015 Newsletter

 

First off I would like to thank all the volunteers that have been helping with our transportation program – clothing collection program – office & warehouse workers. You are the ones that make our organization so successful. THANK YOU!!!

Next I would to thank all that have been donating dollars to our projects. You know who you are. John & Joan Bradley donated a large sum of money that we used to pour some concrete aprons on our overhead doors & up to our donation shed. THANK YOU JOHN & JOAN!!

Several other donations have come in that we use for transportation – handicap equipment – and office supplies.

October 24 there is a 2 hour seminar for Viet Nam veterans & souses in St. Cloud on Agent Orange & Hepatitis C. It starts at 9:00am & ends at 11:00am. Texas Roadhouse will furnish lunch. We will carpool from our office, leaving at 7:30am. Please call 320-587-1000 between 9am and noon to reserve a spot. Also on October 24 @ 2:00pm is the dedication of the new Veterans Memorial in Silver Lake. You are all invited.

We will be asking for volunteers to help distribute sweatshirts to our shut-in veterans in the nursing homes in your community for Veterans Day. We have about 130 to distribute. We owe thanks to our Auxiliary for this yearly project! Please volunteer to help with this project. We will discuss further at our meeting on Oct 27th or call 320-587-1000.

Once again, for the 21st year we are sponsoring the Thanksgiving good will dinner on November 26th, Thanksgiving Day. This year it will be held at the Peace Center at Peace Lutheran Church in Hutchinson. We serve a traditional Thanksgiving dinner from 11:30am to 1:00pm or until it is gone. Last year we served 369 meals. We will need some volunteers to help serve, clean up, and prepare food, and drivers to deliver food or pickup people that wish to join us for dinner!

Our thanks need to go out to several local businesses for their donations – Pro Auto is doing the maintenance on our vehicles at no charge and also donated $3000.00 towards the purchase of our new trailer. Citizens Bank & Trust – Brinkman’s Trailer sales, Litchfield Auto Body for graphics on the trailer and our commander, Roy Gierke for paying the bill for the graphics! THANK YOU!!

We have some used vehicles for sale if anyone is in need. Call me at 612-791-5143
