Hospital / VAVS

Through unselfish giving of time, energy, love and devotion, thousands of Veterans have been cheered, comforted, loved and thanked for the DEDICATED SERVICE to us when it was needed.  All that we are and have today, we owe to the Veterans who answered the call.  Now it is our turn to let them know how much we appreciate all they did, never forgetting their sacrifices.  These Veterans can be found in the VA hospitals, nursing homes, out-patient clinics and in their homes in every community.  More and more their numbers are increasing as they become older and experience more health problems.  Some of these men and women have no families or relatives to offer them comfort.  VFW Auxiliary members sit with them, read for them, or maybe write a letter for them.

Don't forget about our annual King Day celebration.  Those residents who do not wish to go out for the picnic get their meals brought to their rooms.  Those who choose to go out will be entertained with live music as they enjoy their picnic dinner.  After the meal, there will be a parade headed up by our wonderful Color Guard.  There will also be BINGO.  A donation to the Cooties will get you ice cream and a soda.  Prior to the day of the picnic, the line officers visit each hall and give a gift to each Veteran.  This requires many volunteers.  If you are able to help, check in at Marden Hall.  If you are going to present a check on King Day at the parade of checks, be sure to designate what they are to be used for in the memo, such as coupon books, picnic, VFW King Day Project, chapel, etc.
