Patriots and Family of Aaron A Weaver Chapter 776,

The West Citrus Elks Lodge 2693 hosted a great Purple Heart Breakfast. This is a very special event like no other Chapter that I know has the honor of attending, absolutely free. If you have not attended, please plan on it next year. You are encouraged to bring guests so that they may learn more about the Purple Heart legacy that we share as combat wounded veterans.

At the breakfast, the Citrus County Building Alliance presented the Chapter, as the tournament’s charitable partner, a $5,000 check from a portion of the tournament’s proceeds. Also at the breakfast, I had the pleasure, on behalf of the Department of Florida Commander Craig Wertheim, to present our Chapter Adjutant, Curt Ebitz, with the Department of Florida Patriot of the Year Award and our Chapter Chaplain, Troy Allen, the Department of Florida Jonas Jacobsen Volunteer of the Year Award. I also want to thank Chapter 776 Patriots and Associates for their dedicated support that earned for the Chapter the distinction of being selected for the Department of Florida Service Award.

Speaking of breakfast, Patriots interested in meeting for breakfast are invited to join me and fellow Patriots at 9:15 a.m., Thursday, September 14 at SOCOS House of Eats, 7364 W. Grover Cleveland Blvd., Homosassa (formerly Dan’s Clam Stand). The owner-chef is a Marine Corps veteran. I hope to do it on a monthly basis so that we can build camaraderie by getting to know each other better. 

Yours in Patriotism,

Richard Hunt, Commander
