King William Ruritans donate $2,100 to local veteran

KING WILLIAM — Recognizing and supporting our local veterans was the goal of the King William Ruritan Club when they held a spaghetti dinner at the club facility on May 29.  The event was spearheaded by Club President David Leake and Club Director Rocky Hurley and, along with the help of club members, people and businesses in the community, the club netted $2,100. Hurley presented the check to local veteran Wiley Williams. Williams, who resides in West Point, served in the Army from 1963 to 1966 and, as a result of his injuries during his service, is confined to a wheelchair and has many out-of-pocket medical expenses.

The support of the people and businesses in the community was phenomenal in this endeavor and the club would like to honor B.W. White Funeral Home, West Point Pharmacy, Hopkins Gun and Tackle, Vinny's Restaurant, Ripley's Restaurant, Twin Rivers Reality, and Dentist Andrea Mitman of Aylett for their donations to this event.
