Good Morning Comrades,
Will you please pass this information along to your email contacts?

On Sunday 18 Aug 2013 three units of the 404th Maneuver Enhancement Brigade US ARMY ILLINOIS NATIONAL GUARD will be having a Military Family Picnic at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, IL.

Maureen Keener is the Family Readiness Support Assistant (FRSA) within this Brigade and has ask Veteran's Organizations for Volunteers to help with this event. Our help was originally needed to cook and serve the Burgers and other food, however I was informed by Maureen yesterday that Famous Dave's will be Catering the food and no cooking will be needed, however servers and other jobs need to be
done. Even if you can come help for a couple hours it would be much appreciated. These Soldiers have been away from their families on Deployment and need to spend this time with them, not doing the tasks needed to make this event happen.

All Volunteers will get into the Park FREE of charge, but I need to know in advance who is going to Volunteer. So please come out and help. We
will meet at Cantigny Park at 08:00 AM to see
what is needed and assign jobs as needed.

If you, or any of your family members can help please call me ASAP. We need a head count by Thursday Afternoon at the latest so we have the extra food. My contact information is: Larry Shaver Cell - 630.251.5193, email - lshaver@gmail.com.

Thanks in advance for your support. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A VETERAN TO HELP! VFW & AM LEGION THIS
IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO RECRUIT NEW MEMBERS!

Thanks,
Larry Shaver
