Thanks for support

To the Editor

On behalf of Kupfahl-Meyer Scheib Franklin American Legion and Auxiliary Post and Unit #387, we would like to thank the people of Sheboygan County and the surrounding area for the tremendous support for our fund-raising dinner held at Laacks Hall in Johnsonville.

Funds raised for our veterans programs will be used locally for Veterans Court of Sheboygan County and the Camo Quilt Project.

Quilts are given to troops being deployed overseas as well as in nursing homes.

Other projects include donations year round to the V.A. hospitals, V.A. homes, V.A. homeless shelters and Camp American Legion (where veterans are treated for health and wellness as well as physical therapy at no cost to them. Veterans are also remembered at these same V.A. facilities at the different holidays during the year. Not only with treats but items needed in the V.A. homes, such as socks and underwear.

I would like to thank the Friends of the Legion and Auxiliary for coming forward to help with serving as well as donating items for the raffle. It is greatly appreciated.

We also want to thank the local business that supported us by donations of gift certificates or merchandise.

In Howards Grove, Klemme’s Wagon Wheel, Miller’s Glenn Golfcourse, Bummy’s Haus, Subway, Zimmer Westview, Luiges Pizza in Belguim, Lee’s Beverage in Sheboygan and the Green Bay Packers.

I can only hope I did not forget anyone. Your support is great.

It takes a joint effort of the Legion and Auxiliary members and the good friends of the Legion and Auxiliary to hold a successful fund-raiser, and the support of community. And thankfully we have that. The veterans really appreciate that support.

We are still a free country, thanks to those that have served to protect us. Let us never forget that! When you meet or see a past or new veteran, be sure to say “Thank you for your service.”

Auxiliary Unit V.A. Chair
