Donnelly's son Dylan, also in fifth grade at BIS, was also helping serve diners during the post's spaghetti fundraiser for BIS fifth-graders' Wreaths Across America projects. Dylan comes regularly to the post's twice-a-month breakfasts, Amy said. "He loves to come down here," she said.

Basehor VFW Post members on Thursday presented Basehor Intermediate School fifth-graders with $525 raised at a spaghetti dinner earlier this month.

The contribution is enough to buy 52 wreaths to place on veterans’ graves in December, BIS fifth-grader teacher Michelle Ablard said. That will be in addition to wreaths purchased with the help of students’ fundraising efforts in the fall.

“We are so thankful for what the veterans have done for us,” Ablard said.
