Generosity appreciated for veterans’ bronze stars

Dear Editor:

The Tuesday after Memorial Day, collection buckets were put out at various businesses by the Isanti VFW.

The purpose and intent was to start raising money to replace the Stars that were allegedly stolen from our Veterans’ graves. All of the Stars have been replaced due to the extreme generosity shown by the CEO of Snap Fitness.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude to those of you that donated to our collection buckets. As the stars have been replaced, we will use the money to purchase additional stars as needed. Either initially for a fallen hero or to replace any worn or damaged stars existing at our local cemeteries. We feel that every fallen hero in the Isanti area deserves the honor and recognition that they deserve for the selfless service they provided while they were in one of the military services. Thank you again for your donations and for supporting our countries veterans.

The members and employees of the Rum River Isanti VFW Post #2735
