—- ( Christmas with the Veterans 2017 ) —-
Thanks for everyone supporting this LWAC event; What a great event at the Friends Center on Friday evening December 23rd 2017 honoring our 64 veterans and 200~300 family members.
Thanks to veterans 5, Andy Glockner, New Life Family Worship Center, Sciotoville Community School, Focus Residential, and Calvin Ray Evans Ministries. The tireless efforts of preparing food, serving food, fixing food baskets, and preparing toys for children we salute the Colliers (great food) Crafts, Hills, Snyder’s, Halls, Blevins, Wards, and photography Bernadine. Thanks to John Foster support pulling this event together for the last 12 years as well as Santa and Miss Santa Robbins with Jay and Denice Foster and kids Santa helpers. Tony Carr in the cold giving food baskets was appreciated. Those who posted Color Guard from the Minford Post we are indebted. Our special singing from Dennis Chapman was exceptional. We chose to do this deed for 64 veterans who received medals around their neck presented by the hero Jonathan Etterling family. The evening was also supported by the Andrew “ Hollywood” Peck family who shared toys for many children that Santa will share with local needy children. Also we honored Josylynn who has received her liver transplant and hope to see her at next years event. This event allowed ours and others to spend Sunday with their families here and afar. Christmas is about CHRIST and family.
