membership notes

Macomb County, Michigan, Chapter 154 was named 2006 VVA Chapter of the Year at the Awards Luncheon at the National Leadership Conference in Tucson. The chapter received its charter in 1984 and for the last 22 years has been one of its communities and VVA’s most active service organizations.

Chapter members work every day of the year. They feed the hungry and work with veterans to help them find jobs. The chapter makes regular visits to the local VA hospital, bringing along good cheer and gifts for hospitalized veterans.

The chapter runs a storefront Veterans Support Center where veterans can receive service representation. The chapter also seeks out veterans to explain the benefits and services they have earned by virtue of their service in the military.

Chapter 154 has a scholarship program for veterans’ children and grandchildren, has an extremely active Color Guard, and runs the Veterans County Food Bank, where food is provided for needy veterans and their families. The chapter also supports the local food bank.

“Chapter 154 is one of our most active and accomplished chapters and richly deserves recognition as Chapter of the Year,” said VVA President John Rowan. “They more than live up to VVA’s motto, ‘In Service to America.’”
