‘Old pilot’ salutes organizer of DHS Veterans Night

My purpose in writing at this time of honoring the service of veterans is to highlight the service of the man who coordinated Vets’ Night at the Dixon High School football game on Oct. 13 – Ron Helfrich. I was provided a corsage, a cart, and the honor of being the “special guest” that evening.

It’s my understanding that Ron has been instrumental in promoting this event for a number of years, to recognize local vets and service providers and to show them gratitude.

Ron is a veteran as well, I’m told, and continues to serve this community. I saw firsthand how much he puts into this event.

This old pilot salutes you and thanks you, Ron Helfrich, for YOUR service, then and now!
