I would like to take this time to thank everyone that participated in the canned food drive for Veterans Helping Veterans and also donated to the Jonathan Etterling Scholarship fund in March. In a 48-hour time frame, the community of Scioto County was able to donate 5,000 cans of food to the Veterans Helping Veterans organization and also raised $1,000 for the Etterling Scholarship fund. I want to mention a few people that deserves a special thanks and I hope I don’t leave anyone out. Thank you goes to New Boston Mayor Jim Warren and Village Council members for allowing this to happen on Rhodes Avenue and also to the New Boston Fire Department for transporting the canned food to Veterans Helping Veterans and also the New Boston Police Department for keeping us safe while we slept in the homeless cardboard boxes. I would like to thank Brother John Foster for everything he does for Veterans and also to Bill and Kay Etterling for allowing us to dedicate this in their son’s name, Jonathan Etterling, killed in 2005 while serving in Iraq. Thank you, also, to Henry and Theresa Applegate for allowing us to also dedicate this in their son’s name, Tony Applegate Sr., killed in 1991 while serving during Operation Desert Storm. Most of all, thank you to three students from Daymar College that stayed the whole 48 hours, Darren Hays, Crystal Hays and Kristal Diaz, and I would like to thank Daymar College and Campus President Rebecca Mowery for the use of their facility area and also Josh from the American Legion Post 471 (SAL) for everything he did. This event was in memory and appreciation to all veterans and hopefully, one day, we may see no veterans going hungary or homeless. Once again, thank you to all for coming together as a community and helping make a difference.
