Mayfair May 26th and 27th in Zenith Park. Come see the fine handicrafts and art at the vendors' booths. Then drop by the VFW booth to pick up your Buddy Poppies for Memorial Day. We will also be conducting a raffle, accepting donations to assist needy veterans, and we will have plenty of brochures to provide the veteran with all the information she or he needs to make the decision to join the best little VFW Post in the USA.
This Memorial Day please take the time to thank a war veteran, to remember those who died fighting our country's enemies, and to help the many still in need of care for their wounds, both physical and mental. Each of those veterans volunteered to serve their country, to serve you, the citizens. They answered the call, and served their country. There are none more noble.
Memorial Day Parade to be determined. The Parade may be held on Saturday before Memorial Day to allow time for our out of town guests to view it, and to ensure the VFW Color Guard will have the time to participate in Memorial Services at several local cemeteries.
"to honor the dead by helping the living" In lieu of a Buddy Poppy drive near Veterans Day, when the winds are blowing the snow and temperatures are below the freezing point, we will pass out Buddy Poppies during Octoberfest in Zenith Park.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help. Give us a call. Our Service Officer will help you with any VA problems. Our Chaplain stands ready to assist when you need him. Give us a call!
As yesterday's defenders of freedom, we want to welcome today's military service members into our ranks to become part of our elite group. Our little mountain Post was selected for the Fred C. Hall Memorial Outstanding Post by National in 2017, likely the smallest Post ever to achieve that honor. Join us, help us help vets.
