MEMORIAL DAY 2021

On May 31st, Memorial Day, Sampson Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Romulus, N.Y. was dedicated as a State Cemetery by New York Governor Andrew Cuomo. Finger Lakes Chapter #377 - VVA from Dryden, N.Y. was the official Color Guard for the ceremony and among us are members of the Chapter's AVVA.  We as a VVA Chapter appreciate our AVVA members.  The three AVVA members that attended this event are Wahneta Evener, Lisa LaDieu, and Cheryl Wunder.

REGION 9

Photos submitted by Reno, NV, Chapter 989

On May 15, 2021 Hawthorne Nevada held its Armed Forces Day parade, and chapter 989 was in attendence. 

Thanks to all who participated in the Heros Cruise in Virginia City on 29MAY21.  We had a little bad luck up on the Comstock …several of our flag poles were bent beyond repair when we hit a low hanging power line which has never been on the route before!

  

Rested at Famous Daves after the cruise

 

The Memorial Day Cruise at the Northern Nevada State Veterans Home (NNSVH) went beautifully.  We had 26 (some classics) vehicles and 14 motorcycles in the 1400 Cruise.  Both Channel 2 and Channel 4 had some very nice coverage of the cruise and the residents for the home were most pleased to know they are not forgotten…especially, on Memorial Day.

Mr. and Mrs. Sherman of chapter 273 Volunteered and assisted Region 1 DIrector Fran Guevremont in distributing information to Vietnam Veterans regarding Agent Orange and the Veterans administration Agent Orange Registry; encouraging veterans who had attended ceremonies in Newport, RI at the moving Vietnam Wall to participate in the registry to obtain the services for which they are qualified.  

 

Fran Guevremont, Region 1 Director, participated with her chapter honoring a Vietnam Veteran wish to go to the spiritual world from his place on Block Island.
