Hats Off to Carland and Le
Hats off to the Sons of Legion Post 285 for pulling together a community meal in Parkersburg Monday night. Nearly 170 people attended the good will donation pork supper which helped raise funds for their programs and projects.
The Sons of the American Legion with side by side with the American Legion, American Legion Auxiliary to promoting patriotism and national security while supporting youth and advocating for veterans and active-duty military.
We’re proud that one of our very owns employees—Carland Siems, an alarm technician—is an active member of Post 285. Carland is a Son on behalf of his father, Kenneth, who served in U.S. Army overseas in Korea, Japan, Okinawa, the Aleutian Islands and in Anchorage, Alaska.
Funds raised from the meal will help with project such as scholarships for military youth and Christmas gifts for Parkersburg and Aplington-area Veterans.
Our Deb and Jeff Hansen Foundation’s Project: Food and Fellowship donated the pork loins for the main entrée and provided warm Sherpa-lined blankets for the 30 Veteran members of the Parkersburg American Legion.
Project: Food and Fellowship also supplied recognition gifts for the Sons of the American legion and Auxiliary members who volunteer their time to organizing events throughout the year on behalf of our Veterans.
Project Food and Fellowship assists family readiness coordinators, military community volunteers and event coordinators with creating and hosting social gatherings for active duty, reservists, Veterans, Gold Star families and all military families.
The goal of Project Food and Fellowship is to help enhance or create memorable and enriching experiences for members of our military and build and strengthen relationships within the community.
