r Saturday, April 7, was a big fundraising day at the Provo Elks Lodge with a craft fair and raffle. Despite the rain of the day, the event drew a large number of vendors and raffle prize donations. Approximately $12,000 was raised and Robert Pagnani, Utah Elks Veterans Chairperson had the following to say. “We just want everyone to know that 100% of the funds raised goes towards Utah Veterans Programs. One of our major projects is going to be for our Little Warriors Camp. This is for Veterans kids and their families who have lost a parent killed in action or committed suicide related to PTSD.” The success of the day is really appreciated.
The Little Warriors Camp, known as Camp Wapiti is located high in the mountains above Tooele, Utah. This year’s event is scheduled for July 20. The events for the Little Warriors fill the days and evening with exercise, a morning flag ceremony, a BB gun range, an archery range, fishing, wildlife lectures, arts and crafts, hiking and explorations, a talent show for the children, and campfire events. What a wonderful event for the children of lost veterans. Serve Daily will be writing more about the Little Warriors Camp during the next several months as the date nears.
