VETERANS’ DONATION

The recent Butterfly Luncheon and Release Event raised $2,230 dollars for the Chester Honor Guard Post 125, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6450 and American Legion Post 121. Susan Hineman, the organizer of the event, had a goal of $1,500 to help the Veterans organizations buy uniforms, flags and the ammunition used in a 21 gun salute.

We do what we do to honor our fallen,” said Quinn. “Thank you for doing this and we will put the donation to good use.” (Photo by Julie Riedel)
