The Vietnam Veterans of America National Chapter of the Year - 1999-2007
President’s Message -
Greetings Brothers and Sisters,
Well, here we are, nearing the end of summer with the Pig Roast right around the corner, September 6th, 1200 hrs to 1600 hrs at VFW Post 423. For those who have not already signed up to work at this event, please consider doing so. Please be sure to thank Don Miller and Al Dyer for stepping up and chairing this event for the second year in a row. Guys, our Chapter greatly appreciates your time and effort so that we were able to have yet another pig roast fundraiser!
At the end of September, we will again have a tent at the Clinton Fall Festival. The Chapter is considering not marching in this parade, as we struggle having enough members to march as a group (see minutes). This is, however, a huge event for the merchandise team as well as the Pig Roast, and so we would be grateful if you would consider coming out on the weekend of September 6th. pig roast and 26-28th Clinton Fall Festival to support them. There is always a lot of great food (elephant ears, homemade lemonade, corn dogs, and so much more!) It is a great time for sitting around chatting it up with each other. We also sell lots of dog tags – people actually come looking for our tent so they can purchase more. So,….. please consider coming out and helping out!!
For those who might be interested, the Saline American Legion has a couple of events coming up: a Prime Rib Dinner on Friday Sept 12th; Texas Hold ‘em Tournament, Sept 13th at 5:00pm sharp. There are other events too numerous to list, so you may contact our chapter member, Tim Driscoll, at 734-355-4897, for further details.
There are a few who will be going to Kokomo, as Jon has a site. So to those who are going to Kokomo, enjoy!
Phil (Flip) Hecker
