Home With Heroes was great

 


I would like to share with the readers our volunteer experience last Memorial weekend—the Home With Heroes featured annual 5K run and gun shoot.

The weather was hot but beautiful for this day of running and then shooting at the various stations. Afterwards, winners received beautiful trophies. Food and beverages were provided for everyone. There was live music, raffle tickets and large assortment of prizes. The Grand Prize was a pair of 20-gauge shotguns for one youth and one adult which were donated by Home With Heroes.

This was our first participation/volunteering. There were 100 participants ranging in age from 13 to 70 and older. Their goal is to have 200 participants for 2018. If the enthusiasm of this year is any gauge, we have no doubt they will reach their goal for 2018.

Home With Heroes was a day of fun for families, friends and meeting veterans who have served and are serving.

As a volunteer it was a wonderful feeling, and we thoroughly enjoyed being a part of such a worthwhile cause.

Volunteers are always welcome, Check out the web page: http://www.homewithheroes.com.

We write this with much appreciation for our U.S. veterans.
