Wreaths Across America - There's always room for one more

There's always room for one more.

"But Mr. Arango, I didn't sign up"  There's always room for one more.

"I can't get a ride" Call/text me, there's always room for one more.

"I don't need service hours"  There's no such thing, there's always room for one more.

There are 12,000 wreaths that need to be laid honoring the veterans at Great Lakes National Cemetery.  Come and make an impact and truly thank someone and their family for their service.

I'll be at the parking lot at 11am with the troop flag posted by my van.

See Everyone tomorrow.

OA Meeting Thursday!

Hello OA Brothers,

I hope you all had a good weekend. I just want to remind you that we have an OA meeting this Thursday. The address for the meeting is (21051 21 Mile Rd, Macomb, MI 48044).  We are having a white elephant gift exchange, just like our troop does! The gift should be around $15-$20 and needs to be wrapped or packed in a way, so nobody can see inside. We are also having an ugly sweater contest during the meeting, and the winner gets to pick last (which means you can choose whatever prize you want).
