“Vietnam Peace Accord” VPR for all VFW Posts in District 20.

District 20 Comrades,

We are planning a joint “Vietnam Peace Accord” VPR for all VFW Posts in District 20.

It will take place at VFW Post 9186 on Monday, January 27, 2020. A Recognition Parade of Vietnam Veterans at 4pm and the Ceremony will take place at approx. 4:30pm.

(We plan on having Hot Dogs to munch on and a Cake)

 

The Department Mid-Winter Convention will be in Austin, Texas on Jan. 22-26, 2020.

A District 20 VPR will assist some Posts that are not prepared for this VPR.

 

We do not wish to discourage any District 20 VFW Post that plans on having their own “Vietnam Peace Accord” VPR at their Posts.

 

Participation in this District 20 joint VPR will allow credit for this program for any District 20 VFW Post in Attendance. If a Post Commander cannot attend, a representative for his Post may attend and complete this program for their VFW Post.

 

We have received confirmation for this Project from District 20 Commander Rolando Webber and VFW Post 9186 Commander Nathan Zuniga.

 

If anyone has any Questions please feel free to contact me.

Tony Vasquez (210) 683-6628 (Please leave a message and number, if no answer)

March Out Hunger Food Drive

   Today we met with the head people from the San Antonio Food Bank and Humana Sales Support Ali Bailey. We detailed the problems we encountered from last year and were assured that it will not happen again as we already have more information to move forward with helping Humana and SA Food Bank in this effort to March Out Hunger and support hold hardly these Food Drive.

   Mr. Medina explained that the need for donated food to the Bank is immense. He explained that they help about 58,000 families a week and there are still another 200,000 that they cannot reach because of food shortages. Out of those, 1 of every 6 have a military connection. We as the VFW and District 20 need to support this effort to the maximum extent possible. Remember that hunger is hunger no matter who.

   The Food Drive will start November 11, 2019 to December 7, 2019. Posts can participate monetarily ($1=10 lbs.) or by a Food Bank Barrel where Posts can collect food or both. We need to know which and how each Posts wants to participate (money or barrel or both), contact person information. Once we receive this information, I will forward it to Humana POC (Ali Bailey) and she will let you know the date the Food Bank will schedule a drop off  barrels, for those that elected for barrels, as well as pick them up. Do not mail any checks to the Food Bank. They will come and collect them. Please expedite this information back to us as we have a short window to execute. Thanks.
