Veterans donate $1,000

The Clare-Farwell American Legion Post 558 presented a check for $1,000 to the Veteran’s Freedom Park of Clare County. Presenting the check on behalf of Post 558 is Jan Penton (on the left), a member of the American Legion Auxiliary 558. Recieving the check at the Freedom Festival October 5th is Renee Haley (center) and Cindy Friese (on the right). Ms. Friese is the mother of Pfc. Robert Friese, a veteran who was killed in action in Iraq. The funds were raised by Post 558 at the Veteran’s Golf Outing August 24; please plan to participate in next year’s Veteran’s Golf Outing to help with the Freedom Park project and other very worthwhile veteran’s causes.
