This is our final weekend to collect items and monetary donations. With over 1200 troops currently deployed or stationed overseas from the Great Lakes Bay Region and surrounding areas we need your help to make sure our Troops have a piece of home in time for the holidays.
There will be many events and special guests all weekend long. Here are some examples: Join us at 8am on Friday for a special Colors Ceremony (raising of the American Flag) with the Michigan National Guard, and National Anthem special guest signer Amber Szenay. All Military and Veterans are encouraged to attend Colors at 8am Friday morning at Garber Buick, State St. Saginaw.
