Final van fundraiser planned

Friday, June 4, 2010

The final fundraiser to help collect money for the Clay County Veterans Mini-Van fund has been scheduled.

The event -- a hog roast -- will take place at the Brazil National Guard Armory Friday, June 11, from 4-7 p.m.

Food will be catered by Goodie's Galore and baked beans have been donated by Mary Fisher. The menu will also provide potato salad, coleslaw, dessert and coffee.

Cost for the meal is $7 for adults and $4 for children 12-under.

The purpose of the hog roast is to raise funds to purchase a new mini-van for the local VA office. The van is to help transport veterans to hospitals in Indianapolis, and Danville, Ill., or other hospitals as needed.

There have been three other fundraisers do far.

The first took place at the V.F.W. Post 1127 and the second occurred at the American Legion Post 2. The third fundraiser took place at the Brazil Eagles Lodge.

Marion "Sarge" Eveland, who has spearheaded the project, said the fundraisers have collected close to $4,000 so far.

In addition, the family of Cpl. Gregory Stultz, who was killed in action in Afghanistan earlier this year, gave close to $700 of money collected to the fund after selling bracelets in his memory throughout the community.

Those interested in making a donation may do so at Riddell National Bank 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.
