VA Visit for Team Luncheon

Post 42 hosts hosts a Pasta Dinner Fundraiser each year to help one our most favorite Veteran Groups.  We sponsor the “Lovell Legends” Wheel Chair Athletic Team to travel to national competition. In May of 2016, the Post invited all of our members and neighbors to share in a very tasty meal.

Through the generasity of our donors we were able to raise over $5000 this year to help defray the travel expenses.  The “Legends” had a very successful trip wining 22 medals in various events.  We were very proud and honored to be able to help such a worthy group.

When the group returned the Post sponsored a congratulatory luncheon at the James A. Lovell VA Medical Center.  The Wheel Chair Team showed their appreciation for the Post sponsorship buy awarding the Post Commander and Service Officer with a gold medal.

WAY TO GO LOVELL LEGENDS!
