On Saturday morning, Sept. 10, about 150 volunteers came together at the Eagle’s Healing Nest In Sauk Centre.
“This day has been in the planning for months, maybe even years,” said Randal Baker, President of the St. Cloud Stake of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, in his welcoming address.
The volunteers were tearfully reminded by Cheri Moore, the event coordinator, that a day before Sept. 11, they were here serving those who went, fought, served and some who died because of their love for their country. The volunteers were there to help those suffering from the affects of war.
Workers were divided up and went to scrape, paint and clean several buildings on the property. The focus was on three buildings, to get them ready to paint.
