Our community is so supportive, we come together and help others.  On Thursday 24 January the Mount Horeb Boys Basketball Team held a Garding Against Cancer night.  Like most in this community our Veterans have been personally affected, some of them surviving cancer, others who have lost loved ones and friends to cancer.  We were happy and proud to be able to support the Basketball Teams efforts by donating $500 from the Mount Horeb American Legion and $250 from the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9511.  We were very honored to present the Colors for the National Anthem, the Joint Color Guard from the Mount Horeb American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 9511, and the Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter IV consisted of Joe Williams, Paul Hodgson, Mike Jennings, Don Hartman, Gary Friske, Scott Klassy, Brandon Lutz, Jim Laufenberg, and Tom Pedretti.
Coach Todd Nesheim and your team, thank you for your leadership and willingness to hold these events that help raise money for a cause that is so near and dear to so many of us.  I know it takes a lot of people to make this event as successful as it is, so thank you to everyone that assisted this year and, or in previous years.
On their website Garding Against Cancer talks about some of the impacts the foundation has had: First, funds from Garding Against Cancer allowed the Core to purchase a new microscope that is much more sensitive and will allow them to conduct new types of studies.  Second, funds have allowed doctors to utilize better methods to determine chemotherapy, as well as, other medicinal treatments for cancer.  Third, Garding Against Cancer has given funding to a team of doctors working on a vaccine for cancer.  You can find out more at gardingagainstcancer.org
 I am asking all Veterans to consider joining the Mount Horeb American Legion, and or the VFW, the Vietnam Veterans of America to help us serve our community, our Veterans, and the Youth and Families of this community.  If you know of a Veteran in need please contact us and allow us to attempt to assist in any way we can.
