Flea market to aid warriors

Published 9:53am Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Albert Lea’s Beyond the Yellow Ribbon group and the Leo Carey American Legion Post 56 are planning to jointly sponsor a fundraiser to support Operation Comfort Warriors.

Operation Comfort Warriors is an organization that provides military medical centers with comfort items that aren’t available to our recovering military members.

Our two organizations are planning a flea market on Feb. 22 and 23 at the American Legion Club.

The price to rent a table will be $25, and 100 percent of those proceeds will go to Operation Comfort Warriors.

Interested vendors can sell anything they like, and the table fee of $25 will go to the cause. We are looking for people who are interested in having a table and supporting this important cause.

Contact me at 373-6694 or 438-8225 or at albeyondtheyellowribbon@gmail.com. Dave Olson at the Legion is also helping coordinate the event.
