I would like to thank Clifford Paquette, for a great time.

In our over 200 year history there has never been an official national symbol that specifically recognizes in gratitude and respect the ultimate sacrifice made by members of the United States military in service to our nation. The Honor and Remember Flag was created for that purpose.

This is our 4th year holding our event and we have raised over $20,000 dollars to date for groups such as Wounded Warrior, Purple Heart Homes, The Patriot Guard, and many more. However, fundraising is just a bonus to us, we do this to
honor our heroes and their families, dozens of which have attended our past
events. We hope that this year in Middletown we reach a whole new level.

Frank Forest of the Glastonbury, Ct VFW

Frank puts together goodies boxes for unites over seas. He must do well over 10 to 12 packing’s.

We have many people that cook home made goodies.  People come to help pack  and some to do paper work.

Children’s come to make cards and personal message’s to our service people.  After all the work is done he has lunch for his help.

His next one will be:

 

SUPPORT THE TROOPS  WITH VFW ‘MARCH MADNESS’

             PACKING EVENT ON  FEBRUARY 10

 

GLASTONBURY,  Conn. – VFW  Post 7659 and its Women’s Auxiliary are sponsoring a collection  and packing event on Sunday, February 10, 2013, 12 p.m. to 3 p.m., at South  Congregational Church, 1301 Forbes Street, East Hartford. The theme of the event  is “March Madness” and is designed to support our soldiers by sending a little  bit of home to those serving our country overseas.

 

Donations  of snack foods, such as small packages of potato chips (less than 6 ounces),  boxes of crackers, dips (in non-breakable containers), cookies and other fun  foods are needed. The goal is to ship care packages that will allow our troops  to enjoy watching “March Madness” basketball.

 

The  group also needs donations of socks. All items must be dropped off between 12  and 1:30 p.m. St. Patrick’s Day cards and spring cards and pictures are also  encouraged. This is a perfect project for youth groups.

 

Volunteers  are needed from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. to sort and pack donated items.

 

The  VFW has purchased a number of tickets to the church’s chili cook-off for  volunteers to enjoy, starting at 11:30. Volunteers should sign in with the VFW  to receive a free ticket to the event.

 

“This  is a small way that we can say thank you to our many devoted volunteers. The  church’s cook-off is always a fun event,” said Frank Forrest, who organizes the  packing events.

 

Monetary  donations are also needed to defray the costs of postage. It costs approximately  $15 to ship each 25-pound box. The total shipping bill usually comes to more  than $1,000. Checks  should be sent to: VFW Post 7659, c/o Frank Forrest, 165 Maple Street, East  Hartford, CT 06118.

 

For  more information or to volunteer, call Frank Forrest at 860-690-2845, or e-mail  glastonburyvfw@aol.com.

Glastonbury CT, VFW

 Frank Forest,

From the VFW Glastonbury, CT.

He has a care &  cookie packing’s. The Sgt David Coullard Fund helps out with mailing costs.

Many of the people think that because we brought soldiers home there is not the need  for mailings. The fact is, that we will always have our men & Women overseas.

Even thought many of our soldiers have come home, there still many over seas that need our suport.

We must not forget them, Not a one must be forgotten!

Dear Friends of The Lcpl Lawrence Philippon Memorial Dance,

We are once again blessed by VFW 9929 as the host for this dance filled night at 83 South Street, West Hartford.
Tickets are remaining at $10 a person with a cash bar. Please feel free to bring snacks.
Our DJ, Larry’s Uncle Glenn, will bring the house down with his great dance tunes.
Tickets will be available for purchase through us or at the VFW beginning Jan. 17

All proceeds benefit The Lcpl Lawrence R. Philippon Memorial Scholarship at Conard and Hall High Schools and Operation Smile.

With Faith, Hope and Courage,
Ray and Leesa Philippon

In Loving Memory of our Son, Lcpl Lawrence Philippon

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his life wrote a
blank check Made payable to “The United States of America ”
for an amount of “up to and including my life.”
That is Honor, and there are way too many people in This country who no longer understand it.”-anonymous

“Courage is contagious. When a brave man takes a stand, the spines of others are often stiffened.” Billy Graham

“People rest peaceably in their beds every night because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.”

Helping the Veterans in Gloucester,MA


After the Veteran’s Day Ceremony, I thought, “Well what do they need and how can I help?” It took me awhile but I called Lucia Amero at the Veterans Center and she told me that our troops are cold and they need our help. (Click the photo to watch the video)
Here is what you can do:

Knitters click here to see how you can help

Anita,
You touched my heart. Your generous donation to my office will help our Marines, soldiers, sailors and airmen with their needs. As I mentioned to you, we send packages to our Gloucester and Rockport troops. What I may not have told you is that we send to anyone. Recently, we helped 20 Marines on a team, 14 Marines on another team. Fourteen soldiers in one unit, 5 in another. Six sailors on an aircraft carrier on their way to Afghanistan. We can do this because of the generous people like yourself.
I will look for David’s buoy on the Lobster Trap Tree….

My heartfelt thanks to you.

Lucia
