American Legion thanks volunteers Dear Editor,             “Thank you, thank you” to everyone who helped with the Halloween party this year. From creative ideas, building props (hours of sweat and time), setting up and tearing down, to attending and having a good time at our annual fundraiser for the Grand Rapids Home for Veterans. Our guests of honor were surely missed this year due to the early flu season, but I’m sure they were in all our thoughts as Darcy sang the “National Anthem.”             We had a tremendous show of support by the following businesses/individuals with their donations for advertisement, food, supplies, decorations, raffle, etc. Please take a minute to thank them if ever given the chance: Dee’s Family Restaurant Scorpion Printing West River Carpet Kent Skills Center Society of Saint Vincent DePaul Flashback Sysco JCI Brookfield Equipment Recovery JCI Acoustics SMTE & WAVE JCI Maplewood Leuuw’s Painting Menard’s of Holland Estate Warehouse Norman Foods Smart Buy, Inc. Kremo Bakery Costco Meijer Walmart B&B Distributing Kent Beverage, Westside Beer Farm Bureau (Clark Agency) Gerri at RHS Aseltines Road Kill Bingo WFGR 98.7 WZZM13 The Rockford Squire Detroit Lions Detroit Tigers Detroit Red Wings Grand Rapids Whitecaps Grand Rapids Griffins Grand Rapids Civic Theatre Grand Rapids Symphony Candy Cove (Sparta) Odawa Casino Blue Chip Casino Amway Grand Hotel The Corner Bar Frame & Mat Shop Rockford Floor Covering NAPA Burlap ‘n Rags Sheldon Cleaners (Rockford) Jody’s Restaurant Samuel’s Family Haircare Roxy’s Massages Rockford Ace Hardware Mustang Band …and anyone I may have forgotten!             A special thanks goes to the creative geniuses, Cory, Gary, Jacquie and Norm, and our judges:  Juliet Dragos (WZZM), Beth Altena (The Rockford Squire), Keary Sawyer and Todd “Michaels” Chatman.             I had a good time.
