HELPING HOMELESS VETS - The Taylor and Southgate Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliaries combined to give homeless veterans represented by the Michigan Veterans Foundation in Detroit a happy holiday today in Southgate. Over 50 homeless military vets were bussed in for a great meal and new winter coats, socks and backpacks full of essentials. Here is Sheri Zaddach talking about the event.

Great work!

Great work!

Mayor Rick Sollars visited with homeless veterans from Detroit, during a luncheon held in Southgate by Veterans of Foreign Wars Auxiliaries from both Taylor and Southgate.

This has developed into a somewhat annual holiday affair, during which the groups hold a lunch for homeless military veterans served by the Michigan Veterans Foundation. Over 50 vets were bused in for the affair. They received a tremendous lunch, winter coats, socks and backpacks full of essentials.

Dillon Marshall-Alley of Lincoln Park High School has been integral in the past two events (last year's was in Taylor). Dillon, who suffers from autism, raises donations on a regular basis for a number of charities.

Stephanie Krueger and Sheri Zaddach were two of the key leaders of the VFW participating, and the Shielded Souls motorcycle club also donated their time and effort.

Mayor Sollars told the veterans how proud Americans were for their service, and spent about an hour speaking to individual veterans and volunteers.

ON THIS DAY: 1941 – Prime Minister Konoye (sometimes spelled Konoe) bows to military pressure to agree to prepare for war by mid-October, if no agreement is reached with the Americans over the oil-embargo. The American Ambassador Grew cautions the United States that if Konoye’s conciliatory proposals are not considered, the Japanese Prime Minister could well be replaced by a Military Dictatorship.

Tip of the hat to those involved!

Motorcyclists gathered at the Wayne County Community College District Campus on Northline Road in Taylor on Saturday, July 13, before going out on the annual Wounded America Ride. This year, the ride took a spin around Heritage Park.

Hundreds of motorcycle riders left WCCCD at 10 a.m. and headed along North Line to the park. After circling Greg Bzura Parkway, they exited the part and headed west to Inkster Road, and then to Warren Avenue, and eventually Outer Drive with a police escort.

They ended up heading back to Motown Harley-Davidson on Telegraph Road to end the benefit around noon.

The charity ride benefits Michigan Veterans and First Responders who are being helped by Victory GYM and FOUNDATION 14. Today's ride had a goal to raise $30,000 to support our brave Veterans and First Responders. Last year's ride raised $23,000.

The ride is coordinated by through the cooperation of various Rotary Clubs in the region, including the Rotary Club of Taylor, which is heavily involved. WCCCD and Motown Harley-Davidson serve traditionally as the starting and ending points.

After finishing, there was food and beverages provided by a dozen restaurants, live music and a celebration that was scheduled to include U.S. Rep. Debbie Dingell.

If you missed this year's event but want to participate in the future, call 888) 640-5454 or email Larry Wright at [email protected]
