Pajarito Lodge No.66, AF & AM is hosting a Waffle Charity Breakfast at Pajarito Lodge 7:30-10:30 a.m. Saturday, Jan. 18 for the Northern NM Blue Star Mothers Chapter #4. The Lodge is at the corner of 15th Street and Canyon Road.
Tickets are $7 for adults and $3 for children under six. Tickets are available from Northern NM Blue Star Mothers of America Chapter #4 President Marilyn Peabody after 5 p.m. at 505.927.4341.
“This fundraiser will benefit veterans at the Veteran’s Hospital in Albuquerque,” Peabody said. “Each year we join forces with other service organizations and visit them on the weekend closest to Valentine’s Day and provide a care package. Blue Star Mothers #4 will provide the Harley Davidson t-shirts to the ward we will be visiting. We will donate these items on behalf of First Lieutenant Micah Jay Andersen of Los Alamos as he continues his recovery from an IED explosion that nearly cost him his life.”
Blue Star Mothers #4 will also use the money to send care packages to deployed military and for veterans needing assistance with Service Dogs due to PTSD and other injuries.
