On September 22, the Sunset Lions USA Support Our Troops event for 2013 was held at the Winona VFW. A special thanks to the VFW Women’s Auxiliary for all their help. Part of the proceeds will go to Project New Hope which helps returned soldiers and their families to make the adjustment back to everyday life. They are sent to an all paid weekend at a camp where they can relax and also get professional counseling if desired. The Miracle Lodge resort in Stewartville has connected with Project New Hope giving soldiers from Southern Minnesota a place that is close by.
The Yellow Ribbon group is available to assist veteran families who need help of any kind and they also receive a donation.
Also, we are sending much appreciated items to soldiers overseas. We are looking for addresses of deployed. Please contact Mary Singer, 507-454-4047 if you know of someone from the area.
Last but certainly not least, we wish to give a heartfelt thank you to all who made a cash donation or an item for the silent auction.
