VFW thanks community for support during ‘You’ve Been Flagged’ fundraiser

Letter

Dear Editor,

On behalf of the Comer-Jones VFW Post 621 Auxiliary, we would like to thank the community for the support shown during our recent “You’ve Been Flagged” fundraiser.

We flagged 47 members of the community in July and the first part of August and had a 96-percent response rate. Placing the flags in yards and getting such a positive response made it a very rewarding project.

We are thankful, appreciative and proud to live in a community that expresses its patriotism and supports our veterans in the way that you do. And oh yes, by the way, we definitely exceeded our goal. We were so proud to be able to present a check for $5,000 to our post, Comer-Jones VFW Post 621, for their new lawnmower.

We were only able to be successful in this venture because of your support.

We look forward to having another flagging fundraiser next year, but wanted to take the opportunity to thank each of you that participated for your ongoing and unwavering support of our veterans.

Page County Proud!

Susan Dinon, President and Shirley Fleharty, Fundraising
