First I want to thank God for blessing us with a sunny Saturday; the weather was wonderful! To all who came out and broke bread and had a beer with us THANK YOU so much for taking the time to join us. We hope you all enjoyed the live music by Abraham Weaver and Jake Worthington as much as we did. A huge THANK YOU goes to the VFW Post 10427, Remembering Our Fallen From Texas, Dr. Tania Glenn, LCR Wellness, Harth Foundation, V.E.T.S., BlackGuard Customs, Shortcake the Facepainter, Cajun Shaved Ice, DC Tattoo, and Lisa Stockton from Scentsy.

As for the volunteers who continually show up each year and help man the booths, cook the food, serve food, sell raffle tickets, carry the auction items around to the crowd, and clean up; this annual event would not run smooth without you; AND this annual event would not even happen if it was not for the year round board members planning, promoting and creating this event. They deserve much more than a thank you; they are Jackie Pena, Ileana Smith, John Smith, Carla Caleffie, Dennis Minks, Helen Shannon, and Irma Phillips.

Remember, PTSD is not about what’s wrong with someone…..PTSD is about what happened to someone. To all those who have called, texted and emailed me, the total funds raised on Saturday, April 30th..........drum roll please......$20,723!!!
