 As the Chairman for our Commander's Special Project Chairman, I challenge EACH District to have a fundraising event, (meat raffle, dance, auction, etc.) for Chris's special project: A Whole House Emergency Generator.  The Generator will be installed in the New Hampshire House at the VFW National Home for Children in Eaton Rapids, Michigan.

In addition, I challenge EVERY Post to hold a fundraiser for the Commanders Special Project.

YOU can make a difference in the lives of struggling military and veteran families at the VFW National Home for Children!

Once you plan the event let our Department Adjutant, Paul Lloyd know so he can send an e-mail blast to the membership so they may attend. 

Have a good day!

Thank you.

Dave Ouellette
