Yooper strong once again

To the editor:

The Copper Country Veterans Association (CCVA) held its annual picnic this past weekend.The picnic is a small thank you to our members who give freely of their time and mileage to preform military rites at over 60 veterans funerals this past year.

We solicited local businesses for donations to be used as raffle prizes. Over 90 businesses responded, and each of our 25 CCVA members present received 4 prizes.

We hope to publish a list of all those who gave so freely in the near future. Thank you for your support, the Copper Country is truly Yooper Strong.
