We celebrated one of our World War 2 veterans, Lorraine Knuth. She turned 100 years old. And she had many people speak on her behalf. She has not stopped serving our country. She works on the board of the Midwest Veteran Closet. Instead of gifts for herself, she asked for donations to the new building that Midwest Veteran Closet will build to serve veterans and active duty personnel. The groundbreaking was a successful event that brought out many political leaders. Governor Pritzker gave Lorraine a proclamation and Congressman Brad Schneider also gave her a proclamation, and other representatives from the area spoke at the event. The new building will be built just down the road of the old building. It will provide an array of public service to the veteran community. If you would like to donate follow this link to the Midwest Veteran Closet.
