Can You Help a Disabled Veteran Neighbor?

An Arnold veteran needs help from neighbors to remove sandbags from his property. Can you help on Saturday morning?

Arnold Patch reader Stacy Breeher is looking for help removing sand bags from behind the home of an Arnold veteran. 

Volunteers placed the sand bags there to help save his house from flooding, and now it's time to take them away.

Here's what Beecher wrote:

My husband and I were there for a while yesterday, but unfortunately had to leave by 10:30 because of previous commitments. I would personally like to thank those who did come out and help. They were Brooke from Bayshore, Pat Jeffreys, John and Pat Hargraves, Cody Laws and Charles Huey. I spoke with Mr. Mueller this morning and the others worked until a little after 12 because of the heat and humidity. We made a pretty good dent in the double wall, but there's still plenty of work to do. The other house threatened by the flood waters also has sand bags still in their backyard. I'm trying to organize an effort to continue the removal of the sand bags for next Saturday, September 14th at 9:00 am, depending on rain. Whether you have an hour or four, please make an effort to come out to help a neighbor in need. Please respond to this post or email me (hohmeierward2@gmail.com) so we can get an idea of how many will be coming. Make sure to bring gloves and wheelbarrows if you have one. Since Pat Hargraves and Cody Laws both go to Seckman, how about a friendly competition between the two high schools to see who can bring the most help? :) Veterans - one of your own is in need of assistance. Please come and show your support. Joanne is right - many hands make light work!!! Let's show that Arnold has a spirit of community!

Just to let people know, there will be a crew of Fox High School kids over at the house tomorrow and Wednesday afternoon around 4pm thanks to my nephew, Drew (Jimmy) Hohmeier. Come on over if you can lend a hand.
