Operation Veterans Encouraging Recovery, also known as O.V.E.R., is now one step closer to renovating a home. They held a fundraiser at Havelock United Methodist Church on Sunday.

The house on South 27th Street was donated to them in the spring. It will be a permanent residence for homeless veterans in recovery.

About 150 people showed up to the fundraiser to eat pulled pork, and of course show support for veterans.

"To be able to sit down, and talk with somebody whose gone through the same experiences as you have is a big plus there," Don "Hawk" Cramer, O.V.E.R. President, said.  "That's where the house comes into play and just wrap your arms around these vets you know we believe they deserve the very best we have because they gave their very best."

Organizers said four veterans can live in the house at once.

The next fundraiser is on October 6 at the Crooked Creek Golf Club in Lincoln. It's the 2nd Annual Autumn Golf Scramble.

The $50 fee pays for 18 holes of golf, cart rental, a BBQ dinner and chances to win various prizes.

You can register now through September 22 by going to www.overnow.org.
