Good Samariton Bowl Silent Auction Event May 4-5, 2014 was a Success
The Brainerd Area Good Samariton Bowl and Silent auction event was a great success. The veterans resource center had 4 different silent auction collections that were bidded on during the event. All items were donated to the center to raise money to enhance the quality of life of our veterans and their families. Companies involved were, Built Werks Construction Company, Maddens, Breezy Point, Craigun's, Fleet Farm, Rafferty's and Brekken's were part of our community support. We also had a faculty and student who made beautiful items for us to use on the auction. CLC student Zach Korwin-Kuczyski made a beautiful pearl harbor piece, USS Arizona. The individual who bought the piece, had a tremendous story of a client he has who fought at Pearl Harbor. This work of art will bring great meaning to that veteran. Paul Bremmer one of CLC's Welding Faculty, created a magnificant Eagle iron piece and a fallen Soldier iron art work. Paul and one of his students who is a veteran at our college, Shawn Harper, have created meaningful and beautiful signs, door stops, and art for the center to further enhance the welcoming atmosphere we provide.
Veterans were able to bowl on Monday night at Jack's house for free, enjoy beverages, snacks, prizes and most importantly having stress free fun with other veterans. The CLC veterans proudly represented the Brainerd Elks, who are committed to bringing veterans together and improving the lives of our learners at the CLC veterans center.
Thank you to all who were involved with this wonderful event.

Donations to the Veterans Center this week!
On June 26th the Brainerd Community Action Organization presented a check of $1,000 from their organization and the Brainerd Lion's to the Veterans Center Food Shelf. Part of the funds were raised during the Military Chilli Cook Off in April and the rest were generously donated by the Brainerd Lions Club.
On June 27th Lakes Financial Services, Glen Sundberg and Legacy Golf Course presented another check of $400 to the Veterans Resource Center here at CLC. The funds were raised on Flag Day at the Legacy Golf Coures during a tournament hosted by Lakes Financial Services. On the 9th hole one of our students, Daytona Knaeble held a US Flag. Participants were encouraged to donate to support our organization. The intent is to host more events to raise funding for our center.
We would like to thank these organizations for their outstanding support to help our organization, veterans and their families.

Proceeds raised during the event will come to us, so it would be terrific if a few people could attend. Its a great way to meet some neat people and raise recognition for our veterans center.
