Letter: Verde Valley really stepped up to the plate
We the Verde Valley American Legion Riders would like to thank the Verde Valley Communities for all of their support for the Shoe Box Drive that enabled us to give so much to our Veterans that live at the DOM or are patients in the Veterans Hospital in Prescott.
On Aug. 15, the fourth annual barbecue for the veterans and staff was held with great success.
Chino Valley ALR Post 40, the originators of this great event, prepared all the food to feed over 400. Verde Valley ALR Post 25 & Post 93 contributed to this and also took the donations of toiletries, socks, robes, phone cards, etc. from all of you and our Posts.
Many other ALR Posts were also there with donations to Honor all of these Veterans that were there for us. The looks of enjoyment from these veterans faces and the thanks that they give us will keep us all going back year after year. Veterans Helping Veterans and Veterans Family Members volunteering at their side, this is who the American Legion Riders are.
Thank you Verde Valley.
