ZUMBROTA – Event organizers are encouraging area residents to attend two fundraisers to be held at the Stary-Yerka VFW Post 5727 (25 East First Street) in Zumbrota in the next few weeks.
The first will be a pancake breakfast on Sunday, February 15, hosted by Zumbrota American Legion Post 183, Mazeppa American Legion Post 588, Mazeppa Veterans Honor Guard, and Zumbrota Stary-Yerka VFW Post 5727. Proceeds will be donated to assist the family of Lonnie Berg and towards veterans’ programs and various local groups.
The second will be on February 28, with all proceeds going toward the unexpected out-of-pocket expenses incurred as a result of Berg’s illness. The 61-year-old Zumbrota man died December 27, 2014.
