The VFW is a non-profit veteran service organization composed of eligible veterans
and military service members from the active, guard and reserve forces.
The VFW and its Auxiliary are dedicated to veterans service,
legislative advocacy and military and community service programs.

To maintain true allegiance to the United States and fidelity to its institutions of freedom
and to preserve and defend the United States from all enemies.

A Walk To Honor and Remember

This year we are going BIG!
Help us complete 58,479 laps at the

Manchester Recreation Center

Starting 1 January, we will record the laps walked at the Rec Center
towards our goal of logging 58,479 laps.
One mile in the Rec Center equals to 12 laps.
And each lap will count towards our goal.

Walking laps outside of the Rec Center or at home? No problem.
Just email, call or let us know how many miles you have logged.
We will record this towards our goal of walking one lap for every veteran
who died in the Vietnam War.
Again, one mile will equal to 12 laps towards our goal of 58,479 laps.

You may dedicate your laps or walk for an individual,
walk in honor of someone who died
or for a relative, friend, organization or for yourself.
Please let us know if you are walking for someone so we may record this as well.

----------------------------------------------------

Come and enjoy the spirited music of the
Ultimate Oldies and the Beatles!
We are so honored to have both groups as our featured entertainment guests.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Vietnam War Toy Soldier Project.

be this March and all who participate are invited.
