While the menu for this popular event remains the same as most events, the crowds that come to support this worthy organization are anything but usual. Last year over five hundred attended and set a record for the contribution the Sons of the American Legion were able to donate• We expect a large turnout this year. Hopefully weather will cooperate and if it does there will be musical entertainment on the back patio• But whether it's rain or shine or blustery cold, this event goes on big. Past years with cold rainy weather didn't deter crowds. Blake Rogers and Judy Taylor, musical mainstays of Julian and the backcountry are donating their time and talent along with their guest musicians for this event• Word has it that Judy might be coaxed into performing her wild-west show. It's the one with whips and guns, oh my. April, the talented, bare foot trombone player is scheduled to appearwith Judy as well. And .... Malaki just might be appearing on the slate of entertainment. Flag man (the second generation) who did such a fabulous job decorating the Legion last year with colorful patriotic flags, is set to come back as well. We are expecting being part of this goodwill effort," says Nicole Schneider, project co-leader/copywriter for John Deere Ag & Turf Division. "We are all thrilled with the success of this project and that all the food was donated to help those in need. In fact, for every volunteer who worked on the build, one person in need will be fed for one year with all the donated food." Richard Williamson, project co-leader/art director for John Deere Ag & Turf Division, says the project is considered a zero- landfill project with all of the building materials being recycled or reused. In addition, he credits several organizations for supporting the company's efforts to create the world's largest can- food sculpture. "The project wouldn't have been possible without technical help from a number of organizations," Williamson adds. "Those include Canstruction®, Inc., which organizes canstruction competitions worldwide; the Chicago architectural firm RTKL, Inc., that led the design and construction of the project; and Hy-Vee Food Stores, which helped source and deliver all the cans of food." During the construction phase of the project, John Deere fans from around the world participated by designing "virtual cans" and submitting them via the John Deere Facebook page. Photographs and videos about the project and its construction can be found at www.Facebook. com/JohnDeere.

All funds go directly to support the troops. Any help would be accepted with deep gratitude and thanks for helping us help the troops. large crowds of DTHers (Down the Hillers) and a large contingent from the Warrior Foundation• But best of all, the young warriors who have served this nation will be there• Some are hurt, but they all hold there heads high and appreciate the turnout and the presence of the crowd that hold their hands out to say thanks for their service• For those of you who have not been to a breakfast at the Legion let me lay it out for you. Eight bucks gets you in, although at this event rve heard more "keep the change" than other breakfasts held there• At times there's a short wait for a table but rest assured there's a guy with a big mouth politely urging people to give up their seats when they're done eating• The food is fresh, hot and turns over quickly• There are real scrambled eggs, pancakes, sausage, hash browns, corned beef hash, biscuits, gravy, salsa, orange juice and coffee. There is a large, efficient group in the kitchen turning out food and washing dishes. While this is a SAL event, the Legion and Auxiliary are well represented and work hard. There are a lot of kids from the high school representing clubs and teams as well. There are also some large tip jars and let me tell you that Julianites and visitors have been very, extremely, stupendously, .fabulously generous in filling the jars with cash and checks that end up in the coffers of the Warrior Foundation. Another important event occurs this Friday night. This one is sponsored by the Legion to raise funds for Brooklin Butts. Brooklin is one of Julian's own. She is three years old, has leukemia and she's fighting for her life. Any of you who have kids or grandkids know the helpless, pain in the gut feeling when your child is in pain• If you can make this dinner or contribute in anyway, I'm sure it will go a long way in easing the suffering of her and her family. The Legion has already contributed money to Brooklin but they want to do more• This is what we do in our little community and you can help by just showing up and have a great meal to boot.
