The current officers of the Sons of AMVETS Post 79 would like to welcome all new members and to thank all current members for their continued support. It has been a long 8 years without an AMVETS building, but the new WAVP is open, beautiful, and offers many activities throughout the week. If you have not been to the WAVP, I encourage you to read our monthly newsletter, keep current with the month’s activities, and join us regularly for Sons of AMVETS Post 79 meetings.
Right now our only fundraising activity is a collection bin located at the WAVP where anyone can donate their cans and bottles. Money raised from this collection bin is used for the our scholarship fund and to give back to the WAVP for upkeep and their expenses. In the near future we are planning a meeting night for the Sons to take a tour of the building, future activities in which the Sons can support our community and local veterans, and what the Sons of AMVETS can help with to support the WAVP.
Upcoming events that are being planned at the WAVP are Saturday steak nights and a monthly fish fry. Remember these? When the details for these two events are finalized they will be looking for volunteers. This will be a great opportunity for the Sons of AMVETS and their members to become more active by volunteering. “Many hands make little work”
Our next meeting will be at the WAVP on February 13th starting at 6:30. Please mark you calendar and plan to attend this meeting. Any questions or concerns may be directed to me or to Jim Trask 319-240-0704. If we immediately do not have the answers we will make sure we talk to the right people to find the answer. We currently are asking Sons members to be more involved in our projects and to fill in as officers are needed.
As we start a new year, please remember our veterans, past and present, along with their families, and what they have contributed and sacrificed for the freedom we have today.
Thank you again for your commitment to our veterans and their families, and you membership to the Sons of AMVETS Post 79.
