           It is not too soon to begin planning for the upcoming Bellmore Street fair on Sept. 16th

           & 17th, as well as the Festival by the Sea (Lido Beach) on Sept. 23rd & 24th. Volunteers

           are needed to set up and break down at both events, especially at the Bellmore Street               

          as many of our members will be at the Vietnam Veterans Reunion in Kokomo, In.

          the same weekend. This will be discussed at our upcoming July membership meeting

          as both of the festivals will be held prior to our next membership meeting.                                                    

Our Awards Night had to get moved to the September meeting (9/26th) and I ask that

you join us on that night as we say “thank you” to those individuals, organizations, and

businesses that have assisted VWVA in providing for fellow veterans in need.

And a note of thanks to those members who turned out for the honor guard at the wake for WW II sub-vet Joseph Librizzi, not only a friend of many in this organization but  of Vietnam Veterans in general. Joe will be missed by many in the veteran community/

Our best wishes go out to member Ken Lane as he recovers from his recent health issues. Hope to see you back real soon, Ken.

For member Bob Chiappone, we say “congratulations but long overdue” as he was awarded the Veterans Service Award by the Town of Hempstead at the recent Salute To Veterans at Point Lookout Park on July 8th.

That’s it for this edition of the newsletter. Enjoy the rest of the summer, be careful, and

I hope to see you at one or more of the upcoming events.
