Butterfly effect

Morning Journal/ Julie Riedel

The recent Butterfly Luncheon and Release Event raised $2,230 for the Chester Honor Guard Post 125, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6450 and American Legion Post 121. Susan Hineman, the organizer of the event, had a goal of $1,500 to help the veterans organizations buy uniforms, flags and the ammunition used in a 21-gun salute: (from left) Mike Dotson of the Sons of the American Legion, Navy veteran Steve Quinn, Hineman, Air Force vet Chad Blewitt and Army vet Mike McGraw. “Let me say on the behalf of the American Legion, VFW, and Honor Guard, we greatly appreciate what you are doing. We do what we do to honor our fallen,” said Quinn. “Thank you for doing this and we will put the donation to good use.”
