To the Editor:
The Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association 19-3 would like to send out a grateful appreciation to all the people and businesses that made our second basket raffle a great success.
This year we worked on raising funds for our fifth Annual Ghost ride on July 21. All of the events that CVMA New York Chapter 19-3 will always be distributed to a veterans need are in Essex, Franklin and Clinton counties. We pride ourselves in raising money for the men and women that have fought for all our freedom past and present.
The hearts of all the CVMA members and auxiliary that were at the basket raffle were overwhelmed with the people talking to them and making their day very joyful.
A very special thank you to Boyea’s, Moriah Pharmacy, Celotti’s Wine, Glebes Reality, Kinney Drugs, Jim Brooks, Decker flats Green House Vermont Teddy Bear Company, E’Town Sunoco, GU, Advance Auto, Rick’s Place, Mineville Oil, Sunoco in Ti, House of Pizza, Country Florist, Happy Star, Fleury’s Deli & Grocery, Two Brothers, Fort View, Dollar General, Mineville VFW, Aubuchon Hardware and all the individuals that made baskets for our event.
To Moriah Central School Superintendent Mr. Larrow, and Theresa Trombley for advertising our event on the school board.
A very special thank you goes out to Darlene Treadway for her dedication to being our kitchen cook again this year and for her donation of hot dogs and michigan sauce. To all the auxiliary workers for a job well done collecting, working and baking to make this year’s raffle a success. CVMA members that helped the girls and made sure that anything that needed to be done got done.
Susan Zacharenko at Times of Ti, for always helping us advertise our events. Without all of you helping us out we would not be able to stand by our mission of “Vets Helping Vets.”
