Berlin Veterans Commission lends a hand to families in need



The Berlin Veterans Commission made two presentations recently to Berlin veterans and their families who can use financial help. 

A donation of $200 was presented to the commission by John Mangifico of the Italian Political Independent Club of Berlin. The funds were raised through a charity golf tournament.

Allan Pipkin, Joseph LaVallee Sr. and James Simons, representing the Berlin Volunteer Fire Department, then presented the commission with a donation of $11,000 to be distributed to local veterans. These funds were raised through various events, including the BVFD Annual Car Show, a comedy show, a bus trip, proceeds from the freedom fry booth at the Berlin Fair and donations received at the annual Christmas tree lighting.
