American Military Family Hosting Another Care Package Party This Saturday
Join me and American Military Family (AMF) this Saturday in Golden for their 'care package party.' You won't regret helping to bring some joy and comfort to our deployed troops overseas.
(Corrected on Friday November 14th to show correct times)
I am personally going to this event and those of you with a motorcycle are more than welcome to ride down with me. In fact, I will plan on stopping at the Hwy 402 Park-N-Ride at 1:00 PM to pick up anyone in Larimer County who'd like to ride down with me. I will also stop at the Kum N Go on 71st Ave and 20th St in Greeley around 12:30 PM before heading West.
These events are very family oriented and a great way to show support to those deployed overseas. The VFW's Junior Auxiliary will be having a soup/bake sale during the party as well and it's only $2 for all you can eat.
The care package party will be held in Golden at the VFW #4171 Post (15625 W. 10th Ave.) from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Did I mention lunch is only $2?
Some of the items needed are:
- Travel size q-tips and wet wipes
- Travel size bottles of shaving cream, foot powder, shampoo etc.
- DVD's, handheld games, magazines, books etc.
- Boot socks, undershirts and flip-flops
