Wounded veteran sale running for second consecutive year

During a time of unsettled conflict in the world, recognition to those who defend our country cannot be given too often. However, wounded veterans need more than just recognition, and that is why River Rats Outfitters is continuing its Wounded Veteran’s Flea Market for the second consecutive year. The flea market began last summer by River Rats owner Ken Soiney.

Items sold at the flea market are supplied by community donations. This year organizers of the sale are actively seeking donations as the number has been down since last year. Most serviceable items are welcome. However, electronics such as computers and television sets are not accepted. Item donations can be made directly by dropping for-sale merchandise off at the sale location.

Like last year, the proceeds that are raised from this Wounded Veterans Benefit Flea Market will be donated to charities that help those who have served our country such as the Wounded Warrior Project, a charity that aids military families with medical expenses and psychological counseling costs.

This flea market is hosted at the River Rats Outfitter business location in Lanesboro, Minnesota on the northwest corner of Parkway Avenue. River Rats Outfitters is at the intersection of Parkway Avenue and Ashburn Street. This is right next to the Hubbard Feed Mill. The sale is expected to run on Saturdays through October if the weather is permitting. During the 2011 summer sale there was around $1500.00 raised and donated to the Wounded Warrior Project in the name of Master Sergeant Merlin K. Soiney. This year any money raised will be donated in the name of Lyle Peterson.
