SERVING OUR SOLDIERS
Our County’s SOS (Serving Our Soldiers) Committee is preparing to send out another one of our wonderful goodie packages to our troops serving in combat overseas. We want those serving to know we are thinking of them and we hope that this package will bring them some of the comforts of home.
If you have a loved one who is currently serving active duty, we would like to include them in our SOS program. Please submit their name, address (including APO), estimated return date and photo (jpg or tif) to Tina Merlitti no later than July 24th. All of the SOS Committee soldiers’ names will also be submitted to the local USO office for additional packages to be sent.
This year’s goodies packages will include: snacks, summer games, batteries, and bug spray. All of profits from the SOS Flower Sale and Pie Sale pay for the goodies and shipping cost of these packages. Thank you to the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. - Zeta Theta Omega Chapter for their continued support of our men and women in the Armed Services with their large donation of batteries which will be part of the July packages.
