Greetings Veterans and Fellow Patriots:

I always forget how busy our fall season is. Seems like we focus so much on our rally in July, but there are so many other events and fundraisers that we have throughout the year. Come to the meeting to get the low down on what we have coming up and where we could use your help.

Some of us attended the ISU Veteran’s Gala this past Veteran’s Day weekend to represent our great association. We promoted our Bikers for Blood Community Blood Drive and reminded everyone attending that Wreaths Across America is fast approaching. Please do not forget, if you talk to someone who wants to sponsor a wreath for a particular veteran, we need the name and location of where they would like the wreath placed. Also, this year the price of a wreath has increased to $17 per wreath. We have talked for years about placing flags on the grave sites where we need to place wreaths and I am very proud to say that Nicki Chopski and Rudy Moore finally made that happened this year! This should make it easier to place the wreaths on the snow-covered graves this year. There are about 30 more wreaths that could be sponsored. Find out more at the meeting.

If you want to be part of event planning, we still have board positions open and would love to have you bring your fresh ideas.

Please read the October General Membership Meeting Minutes, so we will be able to take a vote to accept or amend them. Keep an eye on the calendar and Facebook for all of our events.

I hope to see you at the General Membership Meeting, Friday, November 17th at 7:00pm at Liberty Hall.

Thank you,

Yvonne “Eve” Aprato, Director
