November 4 Dinner Update!

Hello, everyone! Only one day late.  I have received good news about the Spaghetti Dinner on November 4 at the McHenry VFW. First (in no particular order of importance), the St. John’s Military Academy Silver Rifles Drill Team will be providing a demonstration during the break in the music— which will be provided by the full Suzy and the Q’s band, a very talented group of musicians! It may be a rocking night! In addition, the local VFW Color Guard will be posting and retiring the Colors, as SJNMA will be traveling to McHenry from the Milwaukee Parade.

The JA Frate Semi honoring the soldiers KIA since 9/11 will be parked outside the VFW– Thanks, Richard.

Also,  Tim Stewart and Kent “Deek” Stewart will be the MC’s for this year’s event as our regular MC, Mary Jo will be attending the National Conference of Epidemiologists in Denver where her daughter will be a presenter! Such a proud time for Mary Jo! Kudos to Brenna!

Check back next week as I will post a few pictures of the amazing auction items donated by very generous McHenry County businesses! Come take a peek! An excellent selection for Christmas shopping!

But, the best news of all, is there are two GOLD STAR families scheduled already for 2018! And this is why we do what we do, to honor those brave military personnel who die during active duty to our country as we try to  bring Peace to the world, one family at a time.

Peace… a way of life,
