VFW project

VFW Post No. 1647 and Auxiliary helped the Yellow Ribbon Community Program with a request from the family of a deployed soldier.

The soldier started a sandbox for his children and it was a 10x10 box that needed washed sand. We checked on where we could get the sand and the cost of delivery and placed in the box. 

We contacted Joel Jorgensen Excavating and thank you Joel for donating the truck and sand. 

Thanks to the Cub Scout Troop No. 83 of the Bethlehem Lutheran and Boy Scout No. 75 from the Salvation Army and their leader Harry Ruikka Jr. for placing the sand in the box. This was a great team effort by everyone.

We are always ready to be of assistance to your veterans and their families.

Thankful for help

We would like to extend our deepest gratitude to every one who assisted in any way on July 16 with the vehicle fire at our home. Our thanks goes to the neighbor who called the fire department, those who checked to make sure no one was in the house and to those who offered their assistance. To the fire fighters, we thank you and are so pleased that you were able to save our house.  For that we will be forever grateful. We appreciate so much the fire fighter and Crow Wing Deputy who spoke to us and asked their questions with such kindness.

Our sincerest thank you to everyone for being there for us.
