The KIK Chapter was honored with a surprise visit on Saturday September 17 from VFW District 4 Commander Cecil McConnell. He presented KANG and KIK with certificates to thank us for all the hard work and donations to the Littlest Patriots program.
The Littlest Patriots program provides care packages for pregnant veterans or their wives or those that have had just had a baby. Knitted/crocheted baby hats, booties, and blankets have been generously donated by KANG members to go in these packages.
Mr. McConnell came in dress uniform to present us with the certificates and he shared with us an account of a baby shower that was held with a surprise there too! One of the expectant mothers went into labor at the shower!
It was wonderful to hear a first hand account of how helpful these gifts can be.
Mr. McConnell is the husband of one of our members, Lauren McConnell.
KIK Chapter President
