Jim and Brenda Crouch won Michael Hillegas DAR Chapter’s Christmas Honor Flight Basket. Once again, Norris City came through for veterans. Six hundred ($600) dollars were raised…and that will send one veteran to Washington on the spring Honor Flight.
I would like to thank a special person, Mary Rivera, a DAR veteran warrior. She helped with the donations and has worked tirelessly for the veterans. A few weeks into this project, Mary found out she had aggressive cancer and is now in another state working on getting better. Our thoughts and prayers go out to her and we look forward to her returning home and helping with future veteran efforts.
The entire basket was put together thru donations and was valued at $350.00. Donations were made by Brenda Crouch, Mary Rivera, Katrina Cerutti (CURLEQ salon) and others who wish to remain anonymous. Thanks to all who bought and sold the tickets. We are proud of our small, but mighty Norris City Memorial Library who allowed us to display the basket and is always ready to support any good effort. Last, but certainly not least, the Michael Hillegas Chapter/NSDAR who stands for and behind all endeavors to help veterans.
