Toys for Tots - Council 15704

Our Lady of the Desert Council No. 15704, Picture Rocks, AZ
The Families of the Brothers from The Our Lady of the Desert Council No. 15704 brought unwrapped toys to their Annual Christmas Potluck on December 15th, 2016.
The local Marine Reserve Center sponsors the Toys-for-Tots program for Southern Arizona.  This year we invited them to our Potluck.  We were very fortunate to have two young Marines attend and shared in our Potluck Dinner.  SSargent, Miguel Diaz and Sargent Thomas Laprovote.  Both men were graduates from the local high school.
We asked for and honored all the Veteran Brothers attending the Potluck.  We had a total of 16 Veterans standing and given an ovation for their service.
SSargent, Diaz told us that he will be attending Marine Officers Training School next year.  Sargent Laprovote is attending the University of Arizona in Pre-Med classes to later graduate as a Doctor.  We wished them the best of luck in their endeavors!
The Brothers assisted in loading three of their standard boxes with toys.  See the photo of SSargent Diaz, Grand Knight Ray Obral, and Sargent Laprovote.  Both Marines were very grateful and thanked us for our donation.

Ray Obral, Grand Knight
