My wife, Sharon, and I just returned from a trip to Shavertown, PA. But wait, that's the end of the story. Let me start at the beginning.
On Monday, February 22, I was watching the news on WBRE and a lady came on the air telling a story about her son serving in the Military. It happens he is stationed at Guantanamo where the detainees have been eliminated and are awaiting the arrival of refugees. Meanwhile there is very little for our servicemen to do.
The US government created ball fields for the military but did not supply equipment and this woman was soliciting gloves and equipment for the servicemen.
This issue was brought to the meeting and the officers and members of Selinsgrove # 1173 approved the purchase of $2000 in gift cards from Dick's Sporting Goods. My wife and I delivered the cards on Wednesday, February 24th and that brings me to the beginning of this message.
What a warm and wonderful feeling we had when this woman hugged us with tears in her eyes and expressed her gratitude to the Selinsgrove Moose for your generous donation.
This is just one more example of the tremendous work done here at Selinsgrove, why it is important to continue your dues and why I am proud to be a part of this organization.
May God Bless You All.
