VVA Chapter 989 Resumed it’s Outreach Booth last Weekend at The Crossroads Gun Show
With many events returning to business as usual, 989 resumed it’s Outreach Program last Weekend at The Crossroads Gun Show. John and Linda Dickinson blew the dust off the items that were needed for the Outreach Booth. Many members of 989 were eager to volunteer after the lengthy downtime. You can see from the photos, Chapter 989 was well represented. 989 will have a number of opportunities in the near future for volunteering at other Outreach Events. You may want to check them out on the 989 Website- Members Only- section. Thank you to all of you who volunteered! Well Done !

Team Up at the NNS Veterans Home
Ray, Do you know the Way to 36 Battle Born Way ?
Members of VVA 989 and our AVVA members, The Katie Grace Foundation and a large contingent of volunteers from the local Home Depot Stores in the area met and put together items for the three patios at the home. As residents watched from inside the home, mixed crews in three different patios assemble a patio table, a large cantilevered umbrella, some hose bibs and a storage box for patio items. (Chairs are back ordered and will follow.) These items are part of a larger Home Depot Foundation “Grant” for the home which includes a “build out” for shelving and storage items for the proposed “Sundry Store” inside the home. The store project is expected to be implemented in August.
Teamwork in Action!
