Congratulations to the Pleasanton Military Families, 20 Years!
Community turns out to support our troops

Pleasanton Military Families (PMF) held their Easter Packout at the Pleasanton Veterans Hall. For twenty years the organization has been sending packages to our local men and women serving in the armed forces.

Nice Donation checks were presented at the packout to PMF by the American Legion, VFW 6298, and Pleasanton Resident Vinay Kruttiventi. The PMF appreciates all the many donations of items to fill the boxes donations to pay for the postage. For items to donate: see

Thanks were extended to all who helped with the Friday setup, especially Boys Team Charity and the Young Men’s Service League, which are organizations of young men and their parents focused on doing community service. Other groups, such as Troop 947 made cards to be inserted into the boxes.

A big crowd showed up on Saturday to pack the 150 boxes being sent for the Easter Packout. Pat Frizzel is the coordinator of the Packouts, Denise Harper is the president of PMF. Packouts are held three times a year, Easter, 4th of July and the Holidays.

Congratulations PMF, and Thanks for continuing to support our troops.
