On Saturday, April 15, Silver Cliff Mountain Inn & Restaurant, fondly called “Willie’s” Place, hosted the American Legion Post 170 Tip-A-Vet Program Event. This was the same day as the 9 News Health Fair at the Custer County School, where a discount was offered for those that wanted to have a delicious breakfast or lunch. Veterans from the Post served, bused and dish washed for customers, who were generous and enthusiastic in helping local veterans and their families in need of help. Sue Menz also donated her marvelous baked goods to help in the efforts. The event was a success and $1712 was netted to help local veterans with the Post 170’s Veteran’s Assistance Fund. Thank you Willie and Cheryl for lending your restaurant along with each of their staff and Post 170 Veterans who helped with the event. And thank you all for coming!!
