Help welcome them home

Three years ago, Tiffin VFW Post 2858 and Ladies Auxiliary adopted our national guard unit from Tiffin. We have sent care packages overseas to the troops and hosted a picnic before they left. Our unit now is home and we are planning a picnic for them at Hedges-Boyer Park in August.

We have had several businesses and local agencies offer their services at no cost. We thought the community and other businesses would like to participate in this welcome-home event. We have opened an account at Old Fort Bank for anyone wanting to make a monetary donation. The account is named “Charlie Company Welcome Home Fund.”

We also are making welcome home bags for each of the 120-125 solders. Any businesses wanting to donate items for the bags may drop them off at the Tiffin VFW Post prior to Aug. 1. A list of contributors will be included in their bags. Let us all show them how much we appreciate their service
