Sons of AMVETS

The Sons would like to invite all members to become more active by attending meetings and learning what can be done for our Veterans, the community, and items for the WAVP. Through the donations of cans and bottles we are offering scholarships again this year. Forms are available at the High School Office, at the WAVP or on the Website under the scholarship tab. If you know of a student who would qualify, please pass this information onto them.

Thank you for your continued support

The pool team that the Sons sponsor, surprised John Mohlis with some professional pool balls for their pool table. It was very much appreciated. 

The picture shows the team presenting the pool balls to John.

We appreciate everyone’s help with the can bin and following the rules.  It makes the sorting so much easier and no broken glass in the bin prevents cuts.  The Sons were able to give $500 to WAVP for snow removal with money from the cans.



The Sons of AMVETS continue with the can collection at the WAVP.  When they are redeemed the money is used for various projects including the scholarship fund. There has been an issue with glass bottles not in the original container box and have at times causes some of the bottles to break. We ask that you separate the cans from the bottles and use the correct collection bin. Signs are posted. If we continue to have issues with broken glass we will not longer accept glass of any kind. Your donations are appreciated, but please be respectful when placing them in the proper containers.

Thank you.

Keep our service members safe and keep their family members in your prayers.

There will be no meeting in January.

I would like to thank Santa for the gloves for doing cans.They are appreciated. I’m working on a beer bottle rack to keep bottles out of the bin.  If you have other project ideas for the Sons of AMVETS, please be sure to contact me or one of the other members. As part of your generous can donations, the Sons of AMVETS were able to donate $500 to the Bremer Co. VA office for providing gift bags to Veterans in Care facilities throughout Bremer County.

Remember our veterans in the coming year.

I wish to thank everyone who have renewed their membership for the 2021. As always, we are looking for members to attend meeting, getting involved in ways that  the Sons of AMVETS can work together for the WAVP and for our Community. We do a lot for providing scholorships, but know if we can work together we can do more.

Please make sure to read the Commander’s message about the membership dinner on October 14th. I encourage current Sons of AMVETS to continue supporting the organization through your membership dues. I continue to ask that you attend the monthly meeting, bring ideas for projects, and help out in any way possible. Many hands make light work for all.

Thank you

There will be a Sons meeting this month, September 14 @ 7:00
We want to wish Jim Trask a speedy recovery after having knee surgery. 
Help with the can redemption bin by sorting cans and plastics has been very helpful.  We are still receiving a few glass liquor bottles that cannot be accepted.  Beer bottles are fine.
Remember our veterans.

A BIG thank you those that are still contributing to the Sons can collection box and following the New Guild-lines for the donations. Please be mindful of the glass beer bottles by not dropping them into the box. It is OK to place them, in their original containers, next to the bin so that they do not break. 

Your continues support is always appreciated so we can continue to provide scholarships and  make our donations back to the WAVP. One project that has been discussed is the improvement to the dock area. If you would like to learn more or have questions, consider attending the Sons Meeting.

Due to restrictions at the redemption centers we can no longer accept glass wine and liquor bottles and are only accepting beer bottles in their original containers.  Also, please make sure that the items are properly rinsed out and that one bag is used. (example: do not have cans in a grocery bag and then have multiple bags inside a garbage bad) Please abide by the sign on the bin so we can continue to use the money collected for supporting the WAVP and for our scholarships. Thank you in advance for respecting this new guideline for the Sons of AMVETS collection bin. 
Mark your calendar for the July meeting on July 13th. We would love to see more Sons of AMVETS members attend monthly meetings, bringing ideas for supporting our Veterans, our community, and our local youth.
Hope to see you at the WAVP. 

The Sons of the Amvets announced the recipients of the 2020 scholarships given in honor of past commander Al Bock.  Jentry Eick and Rachel Jebe each received a $500 scholarship.
