Your 37th Street Hy-Vee hosted a Memorial Day grilling event on Monday, May 29. Customers were invited to purchase hamburgers, hot dogs, bratwurst, soda or water and support the perpetual care fund of the Soldiers Field Veterans Memorial. The event also showcased a flag display (US flag, POW-MIA flag as well as service branch flags), Bells for Eternity and volunteers representing the Soldiers Field Veterans Memorial committee.
Fifteen percent of all proceeds were donated to help ensure that Soldiers Field Veterans Memorial remains one of the finest in the country. At the end of the event, a grand total of $459.51 was presented to Terry Throndson, current board member and owner of the Bells for Eternity.
