The Manteno Veterans’ Home Cook Out was a big success. The assembly provide a barbeque meal to nearly 300 veterans and employees of the Manteno Veterans Home on Saturday Sept.28th. Under the direction and organization of Ron Schelli PFN, 45 volunteers from the assembly and families cooked the food, transferred the veterans to the picnic area, served them, and cleaned up. The weather was perfect. Music was provided by Ed Hochevar who brought a singer and his accordion to entertain the vets.
