Prizes for the 2016 raffle

Prizes for our Scholarship Raffle were donated by our many supporters and we are grateful to them for their valuable and dedicated help. All of the prizes are very nice and several are collector’s items. Our Immediate Past Society President Joe Ball purchased the weapons and donated them. Dan and Cleo Callahan purchased and donated several of the books and DVDs about war, and Dan sent several books from Sgt. Robert Callahan’s estate. We miss Robert and are proud to include his books among our over 50 prizes. Yes, we are still accepting prizes and donations. Current prizes and prize donors include the following.
