The list goes on and on and demonstrates how we serve Veterans, their families, and community as a whole.  You can see by our list that we are very busy and have lots of people doing different tasks that they love and enjoy.  We would very much like you to join us and relive the camaraderie and fellowship that you enjoyed while serving in our nation's military.
