Sedalia VFW Hosts a Salute to War on Terrorism Veterans
The Sedalia VFW Post 2591 honored War on Terrorism Veterans with a lunch, pie auction and ceremony on Sunday afternoon (Feb. 24) at the Sedalia VFW Building. The lunch consisted of ham n’ beans that was purchased and prepared by post member Bob Rinehart.
Richard Deford sang the national anthem and ‘God Bless America’, Mike Munsterman of Remedy for Redemption sang “Heroes”, Caitlin Bird provided music before the ceremony, the Pledge of Allegience was led by Senior Vice Commander Greg Bird, and the guest speaker was Sedalia’s mayor Elaine Horn. Post Commander Larry Reven and Former Post Commander Gary Gill appreciated all those who came to the event.
There were many pies donated, which were auctioned off by Johnson and Bay Auctioneers. The pie auction and all funds raised by the donations from the ham n’ bean lunch went to the Wounded Warrior Program. The whole event raised $1,390 for the Wounded Warriors.
The Sedalia VFW wishes to thank Goody’s, Budweiser, Neet Archery, Yeager Harley Davidson, Golden Corral, Bodyworks Day Spa, Perkins, Third National Bank, Vincent’s, Skip Bay and all those who contributed a pie for the auction.
