National Veterans Service Committee Activities

October 2021

by Nancy De Vito

Fall has begun and the hot days of summer are behind us.

Thank you to Dave DeVito for cooking at the 732nd Air Force picnic It was very much appreciated by all. Thanks to our Veterans commit-tee for providing lunch for our Coast Guard Station. Thank you for keeping our waters safe and for allowing our Vets/ Military Park at your facility this past summer so they can enjoy a day of fishing.

Before you know it, the Holiday’s will be here. If you would like to become a member of the Veterans Committee, we sure can use the help. We will again be buying gifts for our Vets at Willow Springs. If we can’t deliver Christmas gifts in person, we will deliver them to the front door. We have several Christmas parties already on schedule and will be doing the virtual stories telling thru the USO for our military families.

Thank you to Pat Podesta for crocheting this beautiful American flag blanket. As one who crochets a lot of work and time goes into a project like this. I’m hoping to raffle it off in the VERY near future to raise money for our Veterans/Military.

So long as there are Veterans,
the Benevolent & Protective Order of Elks will never forget them!
