On Saturday, June 18, the LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry was in attendance at the Huntley Veteran's of Foreign Wars Post’s Vet Fest. The Vet Fest features live music, great food and plenty of military-related exhibitors.
LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs Blitz (LCC Squad), Butch, (LCC Squad), Flex (LCC Squad), Julia (King of Glory - Elgin, Illinois), Nigel (LCC Staff), Butch (LCC Squad), Reba (LCC Squad), and Samson (Zion - Marengo, Illinois) were kept busy greeting the hundreds of people who stopped by our exhibit.
The Kare 9 Military Ministry made some new friends and renewed some old friendships by bringing love, compassion, and comfort to all.
On Friday, June 17, LCC Kare 9 Military Ministry Dogs Brutus (LCC Squad), and Flex (LCC Squad), and Nigel (LCC Staff) visited the Western Springs Park District Recreation Day Camp. The Kare 9s visited campers ages 5-7 years and their camp counselors at two park district locations.
The kids and counselors got plenty of love and comfort from the Kare 9s and wanted to know when we could come again.
