From: “Richard T. Riehle”
***So much appreciation for the Sand Dollars For Soldiers fundraiser this month that Terry O’Donnell put on for our benefit.  Terry donated a check to CCVI for $24.000! Outstanding. Lets remember Terry and his Staff for their generosity.

Items- Donation to Spaulding Rehab Boston, which will be used for their Cape Site. Jeff Brodeur delivered a check for $20,000 from the Maryland Chapter KWVA this week. CCVI and our Wounded Warfighters Group have already donated about $8,000 in related events for Wounded and Disabled Cape Veterans this year involving Spaulding.

Yarmouth Disabled Vet, CCVI gave him 4-$50 TD Bank gift cards, yard needs trees cut down, garage door repaired (?), Dave Collette was asked about the cost. President Paul Glynn will  road test a used car for the Vet on Thur., as his car is unrepairable.

Assisted widowed wife of Vet with Gift Cards and check, VFW Post also threw in $500.

Veteran out of work for months was given a check of $1,000 and $300 in gift cards, VFW post 10274 also gave $500

Checks from CCVI & VFW 10274 sent to Hurricane victims through MA State VFW

Wings Fest Oct 8th Irish Village 12-4 PM. We may have to start later as the Parade time has been changed to start at Noon now.

Our Kenny McGilvray Memorial Golf Tournament is full, it is over full! We have 24 teams so some holes will be doubled up. You can still be part of it after the golf by coming to the Sand Dollar and supporting Terry O’Donnell and enjoying the festivities.  Sunday October 29th the Sand Dollar closes for the the season, come down and catch the Pat’s at 1PM.

We will discuss the problem with the Debit Cards (gift cards) we purchase from TD Bank. These cards unlike the usual Gift Cards lose $2.50 each month after a year purchased. CCVI has always handed out the $5,000 in cards we purchase each time we need them. Last Christmas we gave The VA Vet Center in Hyannis on West Main St. about $6,000 for 12 families and some cards for Thanksgiving. Paul Glynn and I stopped this week and asked Adam what he thought they might need for the holidays this year.

Joint Base Cape Cod Baby Pantry is in limbo. Harry Watling is trying to determine what their future is and the what will happen to all the item we bought at Babies R Us ($2,000+) which was discounted 60% for CCVI.
