Gunny's Military Museum will host a tribute to veterans with their annual Barbecue. Accord- ing to Pamela Caskey, "The Picnic at Gunny's Museum is a Thrivent Action Team Event. Ralph Caskey is the Team Leader and did it to help Gunny with all of his wonderful things he does to help the Veterans." Caskey asked folks going to the picnic at the Museum on No- vember 11 to bring a few canned goods to go in the box to go to the Quartzsite Food Bank; so they will continue to have food to pass out to those in need. Including veterans. She said, "Ralph will not be able to be at the picnic due to medical appointments in Yuma but hopes all will have a good time and thanks in advance for any donations you may make. Thanks also to Gunny and Debra St. Germain for all they do to help the veterans." GUNNY'S MILITARY MUSEUM VFW POST 769
