DAV Forget-Me-Not campaign thank you

Pahrump Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Chapter 15 and Unit 15 of the DAV Auxiliary want to thank all of you who helped make our recent Forget-Me-Not Campaign one of the most successful ever. We would also like to thank the managers and employees of Albertsons Grocery, CVS Pharmacy, Smith’s Grocery, Walgreen’s Pharmacy, and Walmart Super Store for their enormous support. Thanks also to the Pahrump Valley High School Key Club and Junior ROTC whose members donated many hours to assist us in our efforts.

As always, we would like to show our gratitude to our local area media for their support. KNYE, KPVM, KACE, the Pahrump Valley Times and the Pahrump Mirror, who continue to provide much-needed advertising for all our events.

Last and certainly not least, to the citizens of Pahrump – thank you. Our mission of support to local area veterans would not be possible without your generosity.
