Greetings Brothers and Sisters of VFWA 10519,
The colors have disappeared and the leaves are off the trees. You know what comes next! If only our winter months went as fast Spring, Summer and Fall. November is an important month, time set aside to honor our Veterans. On Friday, November 2nd, a Veterans program was held at the Greendale Library. VFW and American legion member Bob Kennedy, and American Legion member Leo Taylor, were honored and presented with a Quilt of Honor. It was a wonderful evening honoring all our Veterans.
Saturday, November 3rd, a short Veterans Day Parade stepped off from the municipal parking lot in Greendale to the future site of the Greendale Veterans Memorial. The downtown Milwaukee Veterans Day Parade will take place on Saturday, November 10th, 11:00AM. Our post and auxiliary will present the colors.
The post and auxiliary have a display set up at Associated Bank, 76th Street South of Layton Ave. Stop by, check out the info we are sharing with the community. On Monday, November 12th, Associated Bank will be treating Veterans to coffee and sweets, please stop by, be sure to mention you are with Greendale VFW Post and Auxiliary 10519.
