Soldiers receive warm welcome
A welcome home party for Vermont Army National Guard Unit HHC Williston was held on Feb. 5 at the Champlain Valley Expo in Essex Junction. More than 200 soldiers and family members enjoyed wonderful catered food, fun children’s activities and bounce houses, DJ music, and great door prizes.
The Family Readiness Group of HHC Williston would like to once again thank the Williston voters for their generous support of the bake sale held in November, which greatly contributed to the success of the event. We would also like to thank Williston businesses The Edge Sports & Fitness, and Stove and Flag Works for donating fabulous door prizes. Thank you to Williston Girl Scout Troops #30663 and #30688, who provided help with the children’s activities.
Also, thank you to the Williston Girl Scout Daisy Troop, who created beautiful and heartwarming decorations for the party. The outpouring of support and donations for the party said a enthusiastic “Thank You” and “Welcome Home” to the soldiers and their families.
Peter Moreman, Co-Leader, HHC Williston Family Readiness Group
