VFW Post 1454's Honor Guard presents the colors to kick off the training event for the Michigan Veteran Employment Services Bi-Annual Conference at Mt. Pleasant Michigan Works!
Family, Farm & Home in Alma, Michigan recently held a "Buy One/Give One" promotion to collect snacks for Active Duty Military personnel stationed overseas. VFW Post 1454's Auxiliary offered their assistance by volunteering to pack & ship the treats collected overseas. It was an awesome surprise to receive photos back from our Troops stationed in Kuwait.
Our Post & Auxiliary is dedicated to serving our Veterans, Active Duty Military & our community. There are many ways YOU can be involved! Join us for a monthly meal or one of our many events - Public Welcome! Stop by the Post to meet our Members or visit our Facebook page. Volunteer opportunities are available for Post & Auxiliary Members and non-members alike.
VFW Post 1454 is "Springing Into Action" serving our Veterans, Active Duty Military, and our community. We have a busy Spring/Summer season planned with many volunteer opportunities for Members & non-members alike. Each donation and act of volunteerism helps us advance our cause but it's your ACTIVE PARTICIPATION that enables us to meet & exceed our goals. We're calling all readers of this post to "Spring Into Action!" Visit the Post, attend Post events and join us for a monthly meal. Public Welcome!
VFW Post 1454 Auxiliary is collecting NEW items to donate to homeless Veterans. They are also collecting gently used men's dress shirts to make bibs for our Veterans. Donations may be dropped off at the Post anytime during business hours & volunteers are welcome to help sew. All contributions greatly appreciated! Thank you for supporting your local Veterans.
