A BBQ supper to honor veterans and active service members will be served starting 5 p.m. and run until the food is gone on Friday at the Morris American Legion. A free will donation at the door will benefit Eagles Healing Nest in Sauk Centre, which helps veterans get back on their feet, but vets and active service members eat free. The Legion Meat Raffle will also start at 7 p.m., and in between there will be silent auction and quilt raffle. Organizer Ivy Rose Kosbab made many of the quilts and told the KMRS Community Connection program how she got inspired to plan the event.
“Well, we were in Joanne’s and I saw the material and I kind of just wanted to do something,” Kosbab explained. “So I thought of the blanket raffle. And then it kind of grew and grew and grew. So now, it’s the supper and the silent auction and everything.”
Kosbab described as “eye opening” the visit she and her mother Dawn took to the Eagles Healing Nest. The event is sponsored by Ivy Rose Kosbab, the American Legion Junior Auxiliary, and 7th District Honorary 1st Vice.
