Editor, Manteca Bulletin,
What a great turn-out Sunday, Oct. 14, for our Troop Packing Event for our military! Lots of folks came, packed boxes, completed custom forms and had a great lunch.
Thanks to our local American Legion Post 249, Manteca. They sponsored us and fed us. Thank You so much. Thanks to the students from local high schools that came and helped us pack boxes; we hope you also learned the price of Freedom. Thanks to our long time friends and those that have been with us from the start. This has been an amazing journey. We could not do it without you.
And to all those that brought items for our Troops, God Bless each of you. We hope that you catch the fire and continue to support your troops. And finally, thanks to everyone that donated to the Cpl Palmer II Memorial Troop Support Program. The seed money goes for a multiple of things - especially postage. All of you that participated in our event and especially those that prayed for us, great big thank you!
There are 83 packages filled with love from the Manteca area that are going out to our troops.
Chuck and Teri Palmer
