Several Clay County organizations are coming together in the coming weeks to help raise funds for the Clay County Veterans Van group.

Dates have been set for dinners at the various facilities.

The first fundraiser will be a spaghetti dinner, including salad and dessert, for $5 at the V.F.W. Post 1127.

The event is scheduled to take place 4-7 p.m., Friday, and is open to the public.

The second fundraiser will take place May 9, at the American Legion Post 2. Information for the fundraiser is currently being planned.

The third fundraiser, a pork chop dinner at the Brazil Eagles Lodge, will take place May 22. Cost for two pork chops will be $8, while cost for one pork chop will be $6. The dinner will also include potato salad, green beans, dessert and coffee.

A hog roast is also in the works. The event is tentatively scheduled to take place in June at the Brazil National Guard Armory. Tentatively, the dinner will include baked beans, potato salad, cole slaw, dessert and coffee.

The purpose of the van is to help transport veterans to hospitals in Indianapolis and Danville, Ill., or other hospitals as needed.

Those interested in making a donation may do so at the Riddell National Bank drive-thru, by making checks out to the "Clay County Veterans Group," or to the Clay County Courthouse, Box 104, VA Officer, Mike Holland, 609 E. National Ave., Brazil.
