A large crowd turned out at the Belleville Moose Lodge on Nov. 7 to honor veterans.
Kathie Steigerwald of the David C. Brown Funeral Home presented 10 plaques to those who helped with the special Thunder Rolls event on Memorial Day at the Veterans’ Monument in Belleville.
Then Steigerwald presented a $1,000 check each to the Belleville VFW and PLAV veterans groups. This represented the money earned in the motorcycle ride that day. She also presented a $500 check to Chapter G Goldwings Touring Association.
Steigerwald said six members of Homeland Security and her husband did all the work in the kitchen for the spaghetti dinner served. Steigerwald has been in charge of putting on the motorcycle ride as a benefit for veterans in Belleville for 11 years.
