Highway Clean Up - April 25th - (Rain Date May 9th)
Charles Ray has taken over the Highway Clean up on Rt 18. This is a major project. He can’t just do it with a
hand full of people. The more people
that volunteer, the faster it gets done. Remember, Our name is on that Highway Vietnam Veterans of America Memorial Highway. It doesn’t really
take that long if we have a nice group of people. Besides that, “You get to keep whatever you find” Oops, I’m wrong! Back, when we used to clean up
Rt 65 between Conway and Baden, Bill Muns found a Credit Card and we had to make sure it got back to its rightful owner. We will need Volunteers!
There will be a sheet passed around at the next meeting for you to sign up.
Otherwise Contact Charles Ray at 724-827-8310 Lets get that list started now!

"HOPE TO SEE EVERYONE THERE"
Cranberry VA Clinic is looking for Volunteers. Right now it looks like Wednesday and Fridays are open in the mornings. They could always use some in the afternoons too. You would have to take a course up at the Butler VA and get an ID Cards. The course is a must as you have to learn the Privacy Rights. It really does not take that long. They have to check and make sure you don’t have any kind of previous record. 1st they do Fingerprints, then after a couple weeks they call you back and Take your Pictures. While you run down to the Café and get a bite to eat, by the time you come back up, Your card should be ready. If anyone has any questions you may contact me as I have been there every Tuesday morning from 8:00 to 12:00 since it opened. In fact, I sang the National Anthem for the Opening Ceremony.
