A letter of thanks to those who supported my benefit, “The Big Boppin’ 50’s Benefit.” The donations went to the Fremont DAV for the Veterans’ Memorial.
Thank you to my sponsors: Brian Essen at Dugan Funeral Services; Emanuel Printing; Madsen Family; DAV; Fremont Avenue of Flags; American Legion; Dave Heywood; KHUB; Greens Florist; and Mel’s Diner.
Also, my extreme appreciation to all the giving people who donated to make this a spectacular event, raising $826.06.
The winners were: first prize, Clayton and Mary Clabaugh (Navy vet); second prize, Michelle Knapp (Fremont; third prize, Rich Wagner (U.S. vet).
It takes a whole community without barriers to recognize how important our past, present and future really is.
