West Bend, WI – A nice donation from the team at Bob’s Main Street Auto & Towing to Wreaths Across America. Members of the Allenton American Legion Fohl-Martin Post accepted the generous gift from Bill and Laurie Rate.
This is the fourth year the Allenton Post has participated in a fundraiser to honor our veterans that have passed. The Allenton Legion Post needs support to keep this proud tradition going.

With community support, a hand-crafted wreath made of all-American balsam will be placed on the headstones of our local veterans. Wreaths Across AmericaTM (WAA) is a national nonprofit organization founded in 2007.
This year the Allenton American Legion would like to have wreaths at every cemetery in the Slinger and Allenton area for a total of 18 cemeteries. Our goal this year is to purchase and honor 800 fallen veterans in our local community.
