To the Editor:
Memorial Day weekend, American Legion Post 491 held its annual fundraiser. My partner and I were assigned to the Big R. The management and staff were extremely supportive of our fundraising activity, including allowing us to continue inside the store when it started raining.
A special thank you to Kelly W for his assistance and help. The generosity and patriotism shown by the many, many shoppers who donated to our fund was truly heartwarming. With all the negativism in the media and our two dominant political parties, it was absolutely uplifting to experience such a high level of generosity and patriotism that is alive and well in our community of McHenry.
I am proud to live here. A great big thank you to all who supported us so we can support veterans in need.
Sgt. at Arms, Post 491
