VFW Thanks the Community for Support

December 27, 2019
Emmetsburg News

Thank you Palo Alto County residents for helping support the VFW here in Palo Alto County, Emmetsburg for the past year as follows:

1. As the year begins we have Lent coming up that we do for eight weeks with the help of eight groups or clubs from Emmetsburg. With their help and your coming we can give a little financial help for the week they worked in serving and anything else.

2. Memorial Day gets us going to remember the ones we lost in passing and from the past to the present for fighting overseas. With flags being put out on graves and Avenue of Flags being also displayed.

3. July 4th, remembering our fathers that started the great nation and getting it going. 1776 was a long time ago and without them we wouldn't be here.

4. August, schools get going and we help start the Catholic School day with flag raising and flag education, folding and history.

5. Veteran's Day, those that have goine now and in the past, remembering those that have given their lives for our freedom and still dong that. Thinking of sending a care package or phone cards or just a card saying, "We are thinking of you there and hope you are okay." It's the small things that make a difference.

6. Freedom Flights, we try to send two groups to Washington D.C. every year. One in May and one in Sept. They go without paying for this day and is something they will remember for the rest of their lives thanks to you. We have sent as small as two to over 14 one time.

We the VFW of Palo Alto County would like to say thank you and have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year from Palo Alto County VFW Post 2295.
