MIAMI COUNTY — The West Milton VFW Auxiliary was recently recognized by Riverside Developmental Disabilities (Miami County Board of Developmental Disabilities) for its longstanding support.
In March, the VFW hosted its 29th annual fundraiser for Miami County Special Olympics, resulting in a $3,200 donation. Since 1988, funds raised by the club have been used to provide many items such as uniforms and equipment for athletes participating in Miami County Special Olympics sports. Members of the Special Olympics volleyball team recently presented a framed Certificate of Gratitude on behalf of Riverside to event organizers and auxiliary members Mary Myers and Charlene Wolfe to thank them for their continued support.
