Big Spring Herald - - LO­CAL -

The an­nual For­get Me Not Fundraiser, which serves as the lo­cal D.A.V.’s big­gest fundraiser of the year, had to be can­celled due to cur­rent pan­demic guide­lines and crowd re­stric­tions. How­ever, the sup­port needed by lo­cal vet­er­ans hasn’t sub­sided.

In an ef­fort to bring in some funds to be able to of­fer needed sup­port in the com­mu­nity, one lo­cal res­i­dent and veteran has put his cre­ative side to the ben­e­fit of the or­ga­ni­za­tion.

Met­al­work creator Ger­ald King, of King Fab­ri­ca­tion & Cus­tom Metal, re­cently de­signed a one-of-a-kind firepit which he do­nated to the D.A.V.Chap­ter 47 for a fundraiser. The past cou­ple of

week­ends, mem­bers of the D.A.V. have been in the com­mu­nity with the firepit. This com­ing week­end the group, along with the firepit will be set up at Hig­gin­botham’s .

Those want­ing to find out how to sup­port the lo­cal ef­forts of the D.A.V. are en­cour­aged to stop by Satur­day morn­ing and visit with mem­bers and take a look at the unique de­sign.
