As a non-profit organization, we rely heavily on donations to be able to provide events and support Veterans. Your donation is also very important to the upkeep of the facilities to hold these events and ensure that there is a place for Veterans to go where they feel welcomed and know those around them have shared the same sacrifice. Please call the Post at 860-563-8876 or email PR@vfw2138.org if you would like to donate.
The hall at the Post is available to the public for events. The hall can hold up to 150 people. If you are interested in more information and availability, please contact us at 860-563-8876 or email the Hall Rental Coordinator at PR@vfw2138.org Please see our Gallery page for pictures of the hall, or stop by to take a look at it.
The 2018 Memorial Day Parade will be on Sunday, 27 May, with a rain date of Monday, 28 May. If you are interested in marching for the VFW in the parade, please contact Eric Palmer at CMD@vfw2138.org One of our members, Mr. Ron Catania will be speaking at the ceremony on the Center Green following the parade. We will be providing hamburgers and hotdogs following the parade at the Post. Please join us in remembering those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and those who still carry the memories of them.
You will periodically see our Post members or volunteers in the community selling Buddy Poppies. 100% of your donation goes directly to Veteran Outreach events and to our Relief Fund for those who come under hard times as a show of support to our beloved Veterans. Every Poppy is put together by a disabled Veteran, and 10% of the money we pay for them is given directly back to that disabled Veteran who made it.
Coming home doesn't mean the battle is over. With over 10 times the amount of veterans lost to suicide than to combat operations in the same time period, there has never been a more important time to TAKE A STAND and DO something to support our veterans!! The members and volunteers are always willing and ready to support Veterans in a time of need. If you know of a Veteran who needs help and doesn't know where to turn, please contact any of the Post officers. If you or someone you know is suffering from PTSD, we have people that have shared a similar experience and are ready to help.
