A big thank you to all that participated in the annual golf outing. This year, your generosity and participation brought in enough funds to purchase ALL of the wreaths for our 2020 Wreaths Across America project! Thanks to all of the volunteers that helped along the way. Thank you to the individuals that donated a portion of their winnings. Thank you Jim Ware for the Bazooka Cannon and thanks to the Dave Holton team, Chris Betts Team, Pete Gross, Pat Brennan and Mike Brennan. We hope to see you all next year.

Thank you Great Lakes Highlanders!
The Great Lakes Highlanders are a statewide Highland Games team. Each member competes at a high and world class competition during the Highland Festival Games in Alma, MI. The Great Lakes Highlanders adopted VFW Post 1454 and donates 100% of the donations collected during a friendly Individual Caber Toss Competition held during noon lunch break on May 26th & 27th. The Great Lakes Highlanders have donated over $2,000 in the last 2 years raised through this caber toss event. Two Great Lakes Highlander members, also Veterans, marched with us in last year's Highland Parade. We ask our Members & Auxiliary to stop by this fun event to cheer on the Great Lakes Highlanders and show them your support. Go Great Lakes Highlanders!

We would like to thank our local 4-H Club & 4-H leaders for helping our Post clean up the Veterans Section of Riverside Cemetery. These youngsters are part of Gratiot County's 4-H program and they are working hard to fulfill their community service commitment. We appreciate their helping hands & look forward to working with them again in the future.
Jackson is a PTSD Service Dog and lifetime member of VFW Post 1454. Jackson has a very important job & is trained for many specialized tasks. He enjoys traveling with his Veteran companion, as far away as Washington! Jackson likes to stop by the Post to visit with his friends. He really likes our popcorn and we hear he's pretty sweet on our Club Manager Ellen too!
