    Thank you Katie, for writing such a wonderful article and we thank Lodi Association of Realtors for their generous donation! I would like to add that the date for the Cheer Box Packing Party is on November 18th at 9am...not the 5th. November 5th we are having a fundraiser at Van Ruiten Winery called Our Troops Our Heroes and all are welcome who are over 21 yrs old. You can check out our website at www.LodiSupportOurTroops.com or go to Lodi Support Our Troops on facebook.

    Again...we want to thank everyone who contributes time or monetary donations to help us help give a little "cheer" to the troops deployed to the Middle East.
