Kudos & Kindness

On Aug. 5 American Legion Post 795 held a spaghetti dinner fundraiser to help pay for my cancer treatments. I would like to thank Cmdr. Gene Ross, Gene’s wife, Gayle, his sister, Rosalie, and all our friends at the American Legion. It was an awesome night for Mary and me. We never expected anything like this, but believe me, the monies raised that night couldn’t have come at a more opportune time.

We were given all the profits from the dinner sale, the raffle sales and the money tree. Even the Cash Only band donated their tip jar. Thanks Davin and Bill, we won’t forget it.

But that’s not the end of this wonderful tale. The following week the young guns from the Sons of the American Legion Post got involved in this fundraiser. Led by Bobby Pierce and Brian Ferro, they presented Mary and me with a sizable check.

You never know how many friends you have until adversity strikes. We know now. Last, but not least, as the saying goes, kudos to the American Legion Auxiliary as well as the Moose Auxiliary. You people are a driving force in all the functions the Legion and Moose try to accomplish. Don’t you people forget it.

Thank you one and all for your help in our time of need. We’re proud to be members of such a giving community.
