More help for veterans

Camp Flores for veterans is a blessing, thanks to Judge Flores.

He has been involved in other programs helping people and has been very successful. It would be great if he could get a grant to help with the cost. I know there are grants for many programs, and yes, he deserves a medal, along with the ones helping him with this program.

It would be great if our city would get involved, finding a location where they had a place to sleep and bathe. They would be able to find a job and get back on their feet.

How about it mayor and City Council, they have put their lives on the line for us. Time to help our warriors.

Big event a success

On behalf of the Atterdag Village of Solvang Auxiliary I would like to express our gratitude. Without the support of the people in the Valley and surrounding communities the success of the Artisan Faire & Treasures with Flair wouldn’t have been possible.

We are so fortunate and blessed to live in such a caring and compassionate place. The positive feedback we’ve received from those who attended our fund-raiser is awesome.

A huge thank-you to the many talented artisans who came to our first event and shared their talent.

The success of this event is due in large part to the efforts of the AVSA members who volunteered, sharing their energy, talents and time. A special thanks to the very talented Auxiliary member Karen Brown. who created Grandma’s Attic.

We couldn’t have accomplished this great day without the help of Executive Director Chris Parker and the wonderful Atterdag staff who made everything happen.

Debbie Knight Marketing Director who did a fantasist job with publicity and social media. Gary Hall, director of operations and the maintenance crew who were always there to help the auxiliary women.

Thanks to David Brown and the Boy Scouts who assisted the Auxiliary with setup, and the National Charity League members who helped at the entry booth.

We would like to extend a huge thank-you to all the businesses that donated to our raffle. Coupled with generous support of the community members who attended, commitment from the Auxiliary members and the Atterdag staff, a fabulous day was had at the Artisan Faire & Treasures with Flair fund-raiser.
