President’s Corner July-August 2016

Well its summer time and the heat came rushing in like a lion. Hope everyone keeping cool. The year is half over and I wonder where the time went too. A lot projects and fundraisers were completed in June with just as many events in July.

Lets all pray for Tom. He has the shingles and is in a bad way. The Good Lord blessed us as well with two donated cars for Veterans from Denniese Dysart and Leslie Shannon. The donation was in recognition of his mother who was a nurse in WWII. The cars are in great shape and spoken for already. A Big thank you Sam for all your help with Mr. and Mrs. Shannon.

Along with Branson VVA Chapter 913, and the DAV, our Chapter is assisting a Veteran in replacing his transmission in Rock-a-Way Beach. The Veteran is on minimal income and on disability but willing to offer to paint for added income. Contact me if you need a painter.

We had a great Garage Sale. We sold a lot of stuff and got more to get rid of. Thanks to Charlie for lending his home for the two-day sale. Thanks to all who helped.

We had a Fund Raiser this month at Golden Corral on Saturday the 9th of July and grateful for what the Lord provided.

A few summer activities include The Day of Caring with the United Way will be August 18. If you are interested in helping a Veteran on the Day of Caring, email Charles.

We have a picnic at Dan’s house in late summer as well as the Veterans Day Parade in Springfield. Are you interested in helping? If so, email Robert Crampton for more information Lets all be a part of this great time to honor Veterans.
