#Veteren Events & Announcements 12/22 to 1/31

Listed below are the events I have for the next 14 days here in the Metro Detroit area, of which there is 1 new item. You can also go to the Legion 328 website to download any flyer for these future events at  http://www.legionpost328.org/events.html 

If your group has an event benefiting veterans, or you hear of an event, please share with me so I can share with the veteran community.  I would rather get an event 3 times than not at all!  Please make sure any flyer lists address of event and a contact person!

You can also find many other veteran events & information for Veterans on the State of MI Veterans website, Detroit Public Televisions' Veterans website, and a few others:



"Marine Corps Toys For Tots (Update)" It's getting close to that time of year. To donate toys, find drop locations, or give good old fashion cash, visit their official website for Oakland County, Wayne County, or Macomb County. ALSO speaking of Marines, the Michigan Women Marines are collecting clothing items for women veterans in need around the area and in local VA hospitals.

"Special Thanks to ABC Warehouse!" As many of you know I volunteer at the Metro Airport Freedom Center, something like a USO. We currently have served over 325,000 troops, dependents, and veterans. Recently our fridge died and it was the great folks at ABC Warehouse that stepped forward and supplied the center, free of charge, a nice new fridge! Just wanted to acknowledge their generosity.
