Local veteran benefit

Organization raises money for local veterans

Posted: Updated:
Thirty vendors were at the American Legion Post 214 in Rossville on Saturday to welcome all community members who wanted to shop for a good cause and have some fun. 

Unique finds and old favorites were on sale. A portion of the proceeds will go towards cooking a holiday dinner for more than 200 veterans now living at the VA hospital in Murfreesboro. 

Volunteers will collect, cook and hand deliver the meals made from scratch  on December 20.

Jack Staples is a retired US Navy Seal. He says, “I'm looking forward to it.  This is a small token of appreciation for the sacrifice and service they paid for our freedom.

The benefit raised $1,000 and organizers say they will hold another one Tuesday, November 11 at 7 p.m.
