Before discussing the details of the 2013 Halloween Shipment, I need to share a message of Thanks.

I am extremely grateful to each and every one of you who helped with this shipment.

As long as our precious children are in harms way protecting us, showing them we care is the least we can do for them.

I would also like to send a special thanks to:

  • Rick King, Sheryl Moser, and Floyd Miller for each making donations of $50.
  • My neighbor Bill Thompson for donating $100.
  • Lisa Brandenberg who worked with Connie Williams to bring about another “Breakfast for the Troops”, something Connie started in September of 2010 with pastries supplied from Jamolee’s Donuts in Fulton. The sale raised $282.06 this time. That was 95% of the postage cost ($297) for this shipment!

Jamolee’s Donuts is a wonderful business located at:

Jamolee’s Donuts
2600 N Bluff Street
Fulton, MO 65251

Please return their kindness by supporting their busniess whenever you can.
