Recent events, blood drive for the police Dept., providing space for the solar eclipse, hurricane relief concert benefit. Numerous programs with children, Christmas baskets for the needy, placing flags on the graves of veterans twice a year by Junior Amvets and post. members, Amvet riders hosted a ride with over 200 motorcycles to benefit Camp Hope (camp for disabled veterans) and Trunk or Treat program for Halloween, to provide a safe place for our children to celebrate. This is just to name a few events this year.
