Some Osakis residents had a brighter Christmas, thanks to an Osakis VFW annual project.

On Saturday, Dec. 17, 11 Osakis VFW Post and Auxiliary members met at the club to deliver 33 Christmas baskets to area homebound residents.

Dave and Sue Crotteau, who spearheaded the project, gave assignments and destinations, and participating volunteers were off to spread good cheer, noted Mike Kral with theVFW.

The generosity and cooperation from the staff at Osakis Family Foods and the crew at Log Cabin Pizza made the project possible. Funding was also provided by VFW Post 7902 charitable gambling proceeds.
