The gathering began at 6:50 PM at the Park Tavern with Lee Hibbetts and Jeannette Patty getting everything ready. Soon the contributors, Medicine Park Friends of Charley Company 949 BSB, came bearing gifts. They brought everything on Charley Company’s wish list and then some, eleven boxes full in fact. With a very little direction teams began to form. There was box assembly team, packing team, note writing team, shipping form writing department and the capture in pictures crew. The zaps of positive energy could be felt. The whole deal took no more than an hour to complete. Charley Company is scheduled to be in Iraq for 18 months and their Medicine Park Friends will continue to send packages periodically. We feel it is something we can do to show appreciation and support.
To all those who gave and participated, thanks. If you didn’t get a chance or heard about it too late and wish to be a part you can contact Lee Hibbetts.
