The Chapter held fundraisers at the Dierbergs stores in Arnold and Fenton on July 1st. Customers at both locations were as generous as usual.  The management and staff at both stores are to be commended for their cooperation and support.  And of course, we are grateful for the Chapter Members who sacrificed part of their holiday weekend. It is their dedication that allows us to do the good that we do.  See photos below of some of those selfless individuals. Thanks guys and gals.
