Prior to arriving at a District Official visit to District #27, Kenny and I picked up our favorite WWll Veteran, Past State Commander, Allen Q Jones. We treated him to lunch and returned to Dunbar,PA. Our Veteran wanted to send everyone a SHOUT OUT to say, "Thank you for all the Love and Support!" Allen Q Jones also stated that if there is a Department Convention and God willing he will be there. ❀

Become a Life Member of the VFW National Home for Children

One way to support the National Home is by becoming a Life Member. VFW and VFW Auxiliary members are eligible to become Life Members of the VFW National Home for Children. Life Memberships are $50 and members receive a membership certificate, wallet card and Life Member Pin. A Life Membership to the National Home is a great way for you to create a lasting bond between yourself and the mission of the VFW National Home for Children. Join the VFW National Home family at vfwnationalhome.org Following this link will help you become a Life Member of the VFW National Home for Children.

Life Members may vote for the Trustees who represent their VFW National Home District and approve any proposed changes to the Bylaws and articles of incorporation. Only Life Members of the VFW National Home for Children can vote during these elections.

We support our candidate, Jodie Hollinger, from the Department of Pennsylvania. Please assist us in supporting Jodie as the next VFW National Home for Children, District Trustee by joining as a Life Member of the VFW National Home for Children.

Youth Activities for kids during this pandemic are few and far between in some cases, however reading can happen any time, and any where! Gifting or donating books is a great thing to do for our youth! It helps create an even bigger imagination in children than some already have.
Please look at the information below from Department Youth Activities Chairman, Karen Mooney on how you can donate books in areas of your community where they are needed.
Thanks Karen!
