HAPPY NEW YEAR – BE THE CHANGE IN 2024 – VOLUNTEER AND MAKE THE DIFFERENCE!
MN DAV Chapter 39 and Auxiliary Unit 29 will conduct their first meetings of 2024 on Thursday, January 11 in the divided main hall of the VFW,1919 Coon Rapids Blvd., Coon Rapids, MN 55433 at 6:30 PM.
The Leo Luskey Annual DAV Golf Tournament along with Clothing Drives and Clothing Bins remain our largest fund raisers to support local area Veterans and their Families within our five-plus county area. For these programs to continue to operate, VOLUNTEERS ARE URGENTLY NEEDED. We are also in need of Chapter/Unit members with some “social media” experience to assist with our Facebook Page & Website (Word Press). Contact our IT and webmaster, Ken Plant, at [email protected] or on his personal Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/KennethWPlant
Our Chapter and Auxiliary Unit helped 73 Veteran Families and 100 Veterans currently residing in local nursing homes over the holiday with volunteers distributing $20,000 in gift cards.
Nominations will be open in the month of February for new Chapter and Auxiliary Unit officers with elections held in March.
COVID VARIANTS, INFLUENZA AND SARS hospitalizations are on the rise. If you are ill, or do not feel well, please respect the health of your fellow members and DO NOT attend the meeting.
