Blue Star Mother Shopping Spree

Blue Star Mothers Shopping Spree at Muir Village Market



Well thanks to Phil Cloud and Kurt Scheurer, we have two $50 bills and we just sent 2 Blue Star Mothers out in the store to see what they could buy.  We will be comparing donations soon!


Thanks to Pull-um Automotive for donating $100 to start another shopping spree and then $20 to cover postage!

Results of the first shopping spree!


 
At the check-out!  Shopper 1 had 35 items and was just 4 cents over!  Shopper 2 had 37 items and went back for 1 more to bring their total just shy of $50!

  

Thank YOU Toni, Log Cabin Inn Banquet Center for Shopping Local!

November 11th - Veteran's Day Celebration

If you attend this event you will also be able to walk thru the LIBERTY TRAILER PROJECT!
HONOR. EDUCATE. INSPIRE.


Honor our Veterans.
Educate our Youth.
Inspire Patriotism.
MISSION:  To be a visual reminder in our community of the high price of freedom and as a memorial to those who gave their lives and to the families who sacrificed so much. 

PURPOSE:  To make the "Liberty Trailer" available to those groups seeking to raise awareness of the mission - at no cost to them through "Event Sponsorship."

WHERE:  Parades, fairs, fund raisers, etc.

FUNDING:  It is funded by Patriots who love this country and understand how much was sacrificed for the freedom we now enjoy, and those who are willing to do something to see that this freedom, "LIBERTY", is preserved for future generations.
