Event to aid vet­er­ans

Serve Daily - - NEWS - By Robert Pag­nani

Did you know that we lose 22 vet­er­ans ev­ery day na­tion­wide to sui­cide? We must re­duce these num­bers even if it is by one.

Come sup­port us on Feb. 7 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Span­ish Fork Fair­grounds in the third an­nual Mu­sic From the Heart Vet­er­ans help­ing Vet­er­ans event. There will be mu­sic, food, ven­dors and in­for­ma­tion from sup­port groups rang­ing from Vet­er­ans Af­fairs in Salt Lake City to sui­cide pre­ven­tion groups. Through funds raised from last year’s event, we have helped over 600 vet­er­ans and their fam­i­lies through fish­ing trips, hik­ing, women’s vet­er­ans re­treats and a three-day camp for chil­dren who have lost a par­ent in com­bat.

We can­not do it with­out you no mat­ter what the dona­tion is. Utah Elks and many oth­ers groups want to sup­port our vet­er­ans. Re­mem­ber, we did not lose then when they were de­ployed and we do not want to lose them when they come home. For more in­for­ma­tion about do­na­tions or sup­port, con­tact Robert D. Pag­nani, Utah Elks Vet­er­ans Chair­man, at 435-433-6938 or pag­nanir@gmail.com.
