Overwhelming vets support

To the Editor:

On Nov. 16 we had our first pasta dinner fundraiser at the McHenry Moose Lodge.

We are Freedom Branches, and we do fundraising to take our veterans to Washington, D.C., on a three-day, two-night bus trip to tour the city and memorials.

Myron at the McHenry Olive Garden provided the pasta, salad and bread sticks. McHenry Culver’s provided the dessert.

We had more than 300 people attend, making our dinner a huge success!

In the months prior while collecting donations for our raffle and silent auction, the generosity of our local merchants in Crystal Lake, McHenry, Cary and as far away as Lake Geneva was heartwarming.

Thank you to all that attended and supported this event for our veterans.
