On Sept. 7 the big game took place: Eaton Rapids vs. Charlotte in varsity football at Charlotte High School.
Charlotte put more points on the board but veterans on both sides of the field were honored.
Each player presented their veteran or representative with their unique game jersey.
After the game in the gusting rain for nearly 30 minutes veterans were honored. It was a moving moment in time.
A bonus to the honoring was the monetary donation to the VFW National Home for Children.
Between the two schools a total of $5,000 was donated.
Thanks to all in Eaton Rapids who bought a T-shirt and / or sponsored of a jersey. Listed here are the sponsors of the Eaton Rapids jerseys.
