Soon after the death of Richie Keltner, his wife Kim ask the VFW if we could assist in finding a proper place for her to donate his 3 wheel chairs. We accepted the project and picked the chairs up and kept them at our post.

We found a need for one of the chairs here in Adair County and in the end, members of the Mark Twain Shiner's Club are going to refurbish all three chairs and return the one to Timmy Roy here in Adair County and then the other two will be placed where they see the need. All their work is at no charge.
