As one of several Veteran Service Organizations (VSO) we also are members of the Chippewa Falls Patriotic Council. As such we provide Funeral Honors for deceased veterans in and near Chippewa Falls upon request by funeral directors.
We also provide educational services to schools on Veterans Day each year; assist in planning and executing parades throughout the year, especially Memorial Day events; tend grave sites for Memorial Day; and provide other patriotic services as requested in keeping within our Patriotic Council Charter.
Our AMVETS post also provides educational services through nationally recognized contests such as our Americanism Essay Contest, the Department of WI Speakers Bureau, and other events throughout the year.
AMVETS has a Letter of Agreement to support National Guard members and units. We take that responsibility seriously.
We support Special Olympics, Boy Scouts, Veterans relief activities, local projects and agencies, Toys for Tots through the "Spirit of Christmas" campaign, and VA facilities in and near our area.
And YES we do Fund Raisers to provide these services throughout the year. We hold an annual Raffle; this year will be Gander Mountain Gift Cards - the top prize will be a $500 card; and our White Clover Drive each year around July 4. We use the White Clover money to support Veterans Relief activities. It takes money to provide the support we offer.
And to THAT END we'd like to thank ALL our supporters who particpate in our fund raising activities. Your help is much appreciated -
