I hope they did more than just raise awareness. I hope they raised money as well to support the Wounded Warriors and their families as well as the Gold Star families. I also think it was wonderful as to all those who donated their time and energy from the Coordinators, Volunteers, Village Residents, Village businesses, and our Elected Officials. Without their time and energy, it would not have gotten done!
