On December 5th and 6th the Missouri Cooties were real busy as you will note as you review the pictures….82 blankets were wrapped for presentation to the children at the VFW National Home. Nancy Cowan facilitated this project and did everyone proud. Diana Ahearn, Grand President, Amy Ahearn, Nancy Cowan MO VFW Sr-Vice Cdr, and Olin Parks, MO Grand Commander were entertained for several hours wrapping 82 packages…but the payoff was the next day handing each child their own wrapped blanket!! The blankets were a real hit with the children as several wrapped them around themselves as the left. Many thanks to the many volunteers here in Missouri that put the blankets together and the National Home for storing them for us until the Christmas program.
