Representative Ford kicked off a campaign eariler this year to seek out organizations to lead the way in boosting the morale of service members and their families. Joe’s Bar  was very generous for their donation of concert tickets to our men and women in uniform. Their donations help to contribute in uplifting  the morale and spirits of Illinois military service members and their families. Their appreciation to the troops is not only a sign of good will, but an example of community leadership. Their initiative to come forward and support our troops is appreciated by our service members more then they will ever know.
