Sweats for Vets - A Sixth District Project to Support Veterans

Thanks to the lodges, 6th district and personal donations, We were able to send 123 sets of clothing and socks to the Veterans Home, located in the 6th District. 

This is a VERY needed and worthy 6th District project.  These veterans gave a portion of their lives to help protect the freedoms we all enjoy everyday.  Some of them have nothing.  Most of them only get the minimal amount to survive.

Again, Thank you from the bottom of my heart, and the resident of the home
