The Military Order of the Cooties and the Auxiliaries for our District 7 made our Supreme Hospital visit to the Gainesville VA on Sunday, February 12. Attending from Chiefland Pup Tent No. 25 were Jerry Bazar, Seam Squirrel, Dee Bazar as Clementine the Clown, Susan Haines, Auxiliary President, Rosamond Boudreau as Rozzy the Clown, Kary Colson and Jim Byrd, Men's Auxiliary President to the VFW. We were able to distribute comfort items and clothing to our veterans. We were joined by Pup Tents from Crystal River and Hernando. As Cooties we help our veterans who are in the hospital or nursing home. Our goal is "to keep them smiling from their beds of white." As the honor degree of the VFW we make formal visits to the Gainesville VA 3 times a year with our next visit being Easter Sunday.
