Veterans Commemorative Bricks
|After the Memorial Day Parade we conducted our 2nd annual

to donate $2,500 to the Fisher House Foundation and $2,500 to the
Montrose VA Food Pantry during the ceremony. All proceeds after

Rifle Detail from the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #8329, and the Irish
Band joined us for the dedication ceremony.
