15th Anniversary Illinois Vets Day
Our 15th annual Vets Day BBQ at Manteno Veterans Home was another huge success, thanks
to the participation of volunteers from five states including Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota and Wisconsin.
A special thanks goes out to Country Roads Band and DJ Sgt Major, who played music for our Vets.
All money raised above the cost of the barbeque goes to the Veterans Wish List and funds
that directly benefit the Veterans of the Home.

On the day of our event we feed 305 members of the home, their family members that come out, the staff
and the volunteers. We serve two Pigs, 50 lbs. of Brat Patties, 50 lbs. of Italian Sausage, 100 lbs. of
Boneless Chicken Breasts, Hamburgers, Hot Dogs, Baked Beans, Corn on the Cob, Salads, Pies and
Ice Cream. Volunteers go to the different wings and meet the Veteran that they would spend the day with.
They bring them out and help them fill their plates. After they get their fill they get to play games where they
win hats, t-shirts, stuffed animals and other donated items. Antique cars and motorcycles were also on display.
