Letter to the Editor

Veterans Committee offers thanks

Sunday, June 20, 2010

To the Editor:

We of the Clay County Veterans Group Committee wish to thank one and all who took part in raising funds for a new mini-van for the local VA office that will provide transportation for all service vets to and from VA hospitals and clinics at no charge.

Thanks to the American Legion and the hands that prepared the fish dinner.

Thanks to the V.F.W. and Maxine's crew that served up the spaghetti dinner, and to the Eagles Lodge and President Dave Miller's wife for those melt-in-your-mouth dinner rolls for that pork chop dinner and the out-of-this-world "Pie in the face" event.

Then the hog roast, that was rained out. We appreciate the Brazil, Ind., National Guard and the Elks Club providing for the meal and above all, we thank Walt Moore, a fellow veteran, for the hog, which will also provide for a breakfast at a later date.

Lastly, The Brazil Times for carrying each article explaining just what we were doing and why.

Thanks to Kroger, Page's and Goodies Galore and Rick at Pappy's Barbecue.

I could fill a page with thanks to so many. We have raised $4,638 to date.

Sarge Eveland,
