Their contributions to the quality of life in Sycamore set the example for organizations like ours, who hope to make a positive difference in the lives of others,” executive director Jea Nae Remala said. “Country Store & Catering is a generous supporter and volunteer at our annual Meet Me at the Fair event each July, so we’re excited that Tom has once again stepped forward to help support our mission. We are very thankful for all that our military families do for our nation. We also always enjoy gathering for a meal in a family-like environment at the VFW with Tom’s great food.
