Women in Spooner are busy supporting the men and women of the Wisconsin Army National Guard’s 724th Engineer Battalion, currently deployed in Iraq.
They are busy sewing “neck coolers” for the troops. If you enjoy sewing, patterns are available.
The women of the Northwoods Support Team of the Adopt-A-Soldier Platoon are also collecting individual packages of trail mix, granola bars, gum and individual packages of drink mix to send to the troops.
If you do not care to sew or go shopping, but want to help support local soldiers, including Superior’s 950th Clearance Co., you can give a cash donation to help with postage. We plan to get these things off by the middle of July.
Make checks payable to the American Legion Auxiliary. In the memo, indicate Adopt-A-Soldier Platoon. All donations may be dropped off at the Community Bank of Spooner or mailed to Northwoods Support Team, 1235 N. Summit St., Spooner, WI 54801. Donations are tax deductible. Call Darlene at (715) 635-2930 or e-mail email@example.com or Lynda at (715) 635-6237 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Last year the Support Team sent more than 200 Christmas Stockings filled with goodies to the soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq. We will again be working on our Christmas Stocking Project, this year for our local soldiers. The 724th Engineer Battalion has about 400 soldiers. The battalion includes about 100 soldiers based out of Superior’s 950th Clearance Co.
