On January 25 Donald Trump announced that he would sign a Bill reopening government for 21 days; after which he may close the government again. Both Houses passed a bill to reopen government until February 15, and Donald Trump endorsed it. As of this moment, government has been reopened. But another reality is that we may need your donation soon, if Donald Trump closes the government again on February 15 as he stated he may do.
From the bottom of our hearts, thank you.

Air Traffic Controllers, Pilots, Flight Attendants Detail Serious Safety Concerns Due to Shutdown
OUR COAST GUARD FAMILY RELIEF FUNDRAISER WAS A SUCCESS
The Coast Guard relief concert and social gathering as a result of the government shutdown was a huge success. We want to thank each and every one of you for your time, energy, and contributions to support the men and women stationed at the US Coast Guard Air Station in Traverse City.
"People who serve in the Coast Guard don’t do it for the riches. They do it because they love our country; they want to serve the country they love," Emily Garris said. "And for us to just be cast aside, this is hurtful. We put so much on the line every day."
Freshwater Events is partnering with the Cherryland VFW Post to put on a fundraiser this weekend for Coast Guard families. Donations to those families will help with things like groceries, utilities and living expenses, and even medical bills.
