Thank you Air Force Veteran, Christa Hammers, for our awesome new logo
Local Life Scout, Matt Beard a Senior at LP High School, with Troop 123 is finishing up his Eagle Scout Project. Matt’s project is restoring the Civil War monuments in the City Park in Peru, IL. The monuments have been vandalized over the years and Matt is restoring them. They are in need of new cannon balls and a Civil War era sword. To become an Eagle Scout, Matt must finish his project prior to his 18th birthday in October and is in need of our community’s help. Total project cost is $2,500 and he currently has only $200 towards his goal. If you can donate, please contact Matt, any little bit can help restore the Civil War monuments! Any additional money raised after the cost of $2,500 will go right back into helping our local Boy Scout troops.
Please contact Matt Beard at 1-815-993-0856 to donate to help him earn his Eagle Scout Badge!

This program began because a local business person “behind the scenes” had a vision for a Veteran Radio Show. Our area has always been extremely patriotic and our Veteran demographics is much higher than average. She approached a childhood friend, Jerry Bacidore, and asked if he would be willing to take on this new adventure and host an hour-long radio show on WRWO 94.5FM, a not-for-profit radio station in Ottawa, IL. Immediately saying, “Yes” and realizing he would need a “wingman,” Jerry asked his life-long friend, Chris Mueller, to come along for the journey. Seeing the good that a Veteran program would do in the area – “Inside the Wire” was born. This is a program that is by Veterans for all Veterans. This has been designed to be your one-stop place for anything dealing with Veterans and their families. The program will have special guests, discuss Veteran benefits, VA Loans, military history, military organizations, local Veteran highlights, Veteran stories, upcoming events in our area and much more.
