Vets help kids keep warm

On Saturday, November 7, Ghent VFW Post #5933 at 2237 State Route 66, held its annual Coats For Kids event. Pandemic caution dictated that only one family at a time be allowed to pick out their winter gear, and they were not allowed to try things on. The children selected according to their size and the style they liked. Once their choices had been made and the kids were outside, they put their coats, caps and gloves on to see how they felt.
