On Aug 3, 2019, PBYR and the VFW shared a table at the Plymouth Home Depot for Military Appreciation Day. I totally agree with Dean’s following assessment:
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!

We were able to visit with fellow vendors and shared several tables with the Heinzen-Ditter VFW, Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve and the American Legion. There was a light stream of folks visiting our tables.
Several people decided to join our network on Saturday and will be added to our mail distribution list soon. We received a very small amount of donations, however the real purpose of the event is for PBYR to express appreciation to Vets and Service Members and support our partner Home Depot in the event. Jim Heimerl expertly demonstrated flag folding and gave some history about handling the flag.
