GUN SHOW
The VVA 798, DAV #5 and American Legion #2 shared a table at the gun show last Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Because of the dedication of one member, Mr. Bill Young who attended all three days and also donated a rifle, scope, carry case and a brick of bullets, the three VSO's made over $300 each. Ben attended Friday and Saturday after the parade. Brad Powell attended Saturday and Sunday. Raffle tickets were sold for chances to win. The next gun show will be on Labor Day weekend. We plan on doing the same thing then. If anyone has or can get a gun or something everyone would be interested in to raffle off, please let Ben Wiese or Bill Young know. This raises money for your VSO's
