HUGE HUGE SUCCESS.  Ran as smooth as ever. Our veterans were smiling from ear to ear.  They made their day a brighter one indeed. 

Breakfast area and coffee carts were a huge success again this year! Thank you for hanging in there all day even out in the cold.

Also a big thanks to all of you meeting at Kokopelli at 430am to prep for the day!

You did a fantastic job keeping the lunch and kitchen running smooth.  You were awesome!

Thank you Wayne for running and getting all that wonderful chicken for lunch. on top of all the others things you did. 

And a big thanks to All the Elks who came out and made the lunch and great success! Some wanted and did stay longer than their two hour shifts.  I don't know everyone personally so I did list names in fear of forgetting someone. Thank you so much! If you know anyone please pass this on to them.  Malcolm and his lovely wife jumped right in to the help in all areas.

Can't forget King Soopers (Destiny a wonderful person to work with a big thanks to her staff) Commerce City who made to possible for us to provide lunch to over 500 homeless veterans.

Another year of great support from the Elks veterans funds and big thanks to Northglenn Elks who got us the grant this year.  Sysco sales rep Meredithand her contacts for their generous donations, my friend Jenny Howard cpa.  My patrons at Kokopelli Beer Company. All who gave from their hearts. Can't forget Elias Munoz, Ken Wares and Ron Beach for their support behind the scenes. 

Thank you for helping us make this another successful year. We could not have done this without all these pieces falling into place and each and everyone of you doing a big part. 

See you next year!
