Black Friday Meet & Greet Update

The Black Friday Meet & Greet was another success this year!  For those that haven't been able to attend in the past, this event is held every year and all are welcome!  Always held the Friday after Thanksgiving.
Two Stooges once again generously provided free food and 2-4-1 drink tickets to all who brought a new toy and a non-perishable item.

865 pounds of food items was collected for the Food Shelf!  Toys were collected for our military kids (see thank you below).

"The toys and gift cards were delivered and already distributed to the children of our militay kids. Without the support of groups like the Patroit Guard as well as all those that want to show their appreciation for our freedom Toys4MilitaryKids could not have supported these families of our military for the last 12 years. Thanks and God Bless you all.  Les Hanson"
Several have asked:  Ron Mackedanz, one of our very early members in the MN PG also still has copies of his book "Drafted" about his experience in Vietnam.  For those looking for a signed copy, they are available thru Kasota Lake Productions, PO Box 251, Kandiyohi, MN. 56251.  Send $19.98 to them and Ron will get you a signed copy - please let him know who to make the book out to and whether you were in the service or not, as he would like to personally acknowledge service whenever possible.  Non residents of MN need not pay the sales tax, in that case, the cost is $18.95.
Thank you for all you do!
