General Information

Acclaimed film, ‘The Welcome’.

Lin McNulty, Outreach Coordinator for a new documentary film, The Welcome, invites you to view the trailer for this powerful documentary that explores the topic of, ‘How to welcome home our war veterans’.

The film could be used as a fund raiser, as a focus for a community gathering, and as a great way to emotionally connect veterans and the public.

Fund Raising Campaign for Tom Darling

Tom Darling, our own Chaplain to our Chapter, is running for the national office of the VFW Chaplain position and as such, is having a fund raising campaign to help with expenses associated with the campaign.

Please see the attached flyer and help out by either attending the dinner being put on for his fund raiser at the VFW 1585 Post this Sat. the 16th or donating to his cause.
