My thanks to all who participated in this event which allowed us to present a check for $1341.00 to Toys for Tots.

Respectfully Submitted.

Note: Dilboy VFW Post 529 lost one of our finest veterans this year. Jimmy Hogan lost his battle with cancer. He was a veteran, former police officer and a friend to everyone. He will be missed.
