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.

I will be attending this event this Saturday from 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM and those of you with a motorcycle are more than welcome to ride down with me. The plan will be to stop by the Kum N Go on 71st Ave and 20th St in Greeley around 12:30 PM to pick up anyone in Weld county who wants to go and then we'll head West to the Hwy 402 Park-N-Ride for a 1:00 PM departure for those in Larimer county who'd like to go.

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
  • Ear phones, ear buds, music CD's etc.
  • Drink packets of Kool-Aid, lemonade, fruit punches etc.
