On September 21, 2019 The VFW is hosting a major event: Thank MN Troops block party and thousands are likely to attend the event. Navy Seals will demonstrate their parachuting skills and it will be a fun event. PBYR will have a booth and help promote the event with an ad in the Sun Sailor.
There was good traffic today at our table at the Home Depot. Gary’s Oreo cookies and soda were a big hit. We faced tough competition with the balloon lady, the MN Raptors Center’s bald eagle, owl and hawk and Every Third Saturday. The Home Depot folks were fantastic to work with.
We always enjoy partnering with the VFW and Home Depot! Although, the kids clearly liked the balloon lady; the Vets wanted to visit with the VFW guys at our table and we all celebrated with Oreos!
