|Once having gotten everyone off the buses and seated in the hall, Past Commander Chet Teater
Welcomed the Vets to the Post. Arrangements were made for those in Electric Wheel chairs to
set at the tables. Each Vet was able to have a volunteer assist them if they so desired. There
were also volunteers standing by to get drinks or other refreshments for them.
|For every Bingo, that person picked an envelope. Each envelope contained money of
various denominations. It put a lot of smiles on everyone's faces.
|The main course for the Vets was a Fish Fry dinner with all the trimmings, prepared
by Chief Fish Fry Cook Jerry "Spud" Huver with help from his trusted staff of
volunteers. They greatly appreciated their meal with Pizza from Three Brothers
Pizza in Middleville.
|The ALR provided a sack ditty bag with socks, soap, candy, deck of playing cards,
ink pen, notepad and other toiletries.
|All in all everyone had a great
time and it seems as though the
Volunteer's may have had a
better time than the Vets.
