We, the Sunset Lions, are approaching the date, September 21, of the 9th annual USA Support Our Troops event held at the Winona VFW. This year it will be from 5 to 9 p.m. Music by Tom Hipps and friends and Bill Lanik with Brian Prudoehl. Admittance is free and a freewill offering will be accepted. We will have desserts and a wonderful SILENT AUCTION. We have a lot of great certificates from area restaurants as well as a variety of items and a fine arts section.
We have been able to help veterans and their families in several ways. We send care boxes overseas to our soldiers in difficult areas. We help support the Beyond the Yellow Ribbon group, which sends veterans and their families to a resort for a long weekend along with counseling if they wish. Families of deployed have also been helped with anything they may need through the Yellow Ribbon group, which this event also supports.
I have received many heartfelt thank-yous from our soldiers.
Please, if you are a veteran, come and join us in order that we may properly thank you for your service. If you KNOW of a veteran please extend this invitation to him or her.
Thank you and God bless.
