Helping veterans

To the Editor:

Thank you to all customers who visited The Tracks restaurant on Sunday, Nov.11, and supported our AMVETS Pearl Harbor Post 245 by purchasing tickets to win wonderful food-related prizes, such as steaks, lobster and, naturally, turkeys.

Our hospitalized veterans will benefit from the profits collected in the form of being part of the June 2013 picnic at Lions Park in Fox River Grove.

In addition, AMVETS also provides scholarships, monthly bingo parties at the North Chicago veterans hospital (Jim Lovell Medical Center), and many other veteran-related activities and donations.

Thank you, The Tracks, for allowing us to have this benefit raffle to be held at your facility. God Bless our active duty military who are serving now at this time, and thank you veterans for your past service.
