On Thursday, March 23, 2017, the Veterans Committee held a pack out. Prior to this evening, members of the committee had shopped for the supplies, collected the cartons, prepared the address labels, and stuffed the envelopes. The committee gathered at 7 pm in the card room at the lodge where they sorted, packed, wrapped, taped, addressed, and filled out custom forms for eleven care packages. More packages will be sent to Matt Fischer and his unit deployed in Djibouti, Africa, and the rest are to go to a Coast Guard Cutter deployed off the coast of Central and South America on patrol duty carrying out drug interdiction missions.
A special thank you goes to the following members and antlers for assisting in the pack out: Gail Feaster, Ray Steward, Leroy Tellis, Chris Cormier, Trudy LaFlamme, Dean Seaquist, Ray Miller Jr., Tom Costa, Debbie Voogd, Julianna Eckard, Kurt Libby, Kelly Wieber, Vic Quintell, Bruce Hanley, Jennifer Eckard, and Gary and Judy Blank.
This project was made possible due to the generous donations of the lodge members who attended the Veterans Day Dinner.
