Operation Improvement: Fall 2017 Post Cleanup

Fall is upon us and the perfect time to make some improvements to our Post home and to our surrounding community landscape!

On Saturday, 23 September 2017, we will be conducting a Post Clean Up and Highway Clean Up and we need YOUR help! This time around we will also be building some new things as we work towards updating and improving our Post home!  

SIGNUP HERE:  http://signup.com/go/NRAsTyK

We had a HUGE turnout in April for Operation Beautification and thanks to the help of over 30 sets of helping hands we were able to accomplish a lot. We need the same level of support from all of you to accomplish completing a deep cleaning of the Post, tending to our adopted section of Lee Highway, and several repairs and an addition to keep improving our Post home! The more help we can get - the more we can get done!

Did you know that John Lyon VFW Post 3150 has participated in the Adopt a Highway Program for over 20 years?! Our adopted highway is Lee Highway (both sides) from Veitch Street to Nash Street and we are responsible for conducting a clean up at least twice a year.

We will start at 9am - morning coffee and lunch will be provided.

SIGNUP HERE:  http://signup.com/go/NRAsTyK

We kindly request you sign up to help using the link above. Having an accurate head count of helpers ensures we have enough food to provide for lunch and helps us plan out how many projects we can complete. 

Please consider volunteering a few hours of your time to help care for our Post home and to care for a section of our local community.

Do you know anyone who needs to conduct community service? If so, please invite them to help us on the 23rd.

Old Glory Relay Fundraiser and Cookout

oin us for a family friendly afternoon of live entertainment, food, multiple raffles (including a 50/50 raffle), and community as we help Team Combined Arms raise funds for the Old Glory Relay. 

Event Highlights:
Honor Brewing Company Tap Takeover
- Veteran comedians from Armed Services Arts Partnership 
- Veteran musicians
- More to be announced!

Stay tuned as we update this event for additional contributors, food details & entertainment lineup! We will post updates in this event page as we finalize all of the details. 

The Old Glory Relay begins on September 11th and 62 teams will carry a single American flag more than 4,000 miles across the country, from Washington state to Florida. The relay is a project of Team Red, White & Blue, a nonprofit that aims to enrich the lives of America’s veterans by connecting them to their community through physical and social activity. Team Combined Arms will carry the American Flag on day 48 (28 October 2017) from Sorrento, LA to New Orleans, LA. 

Team Combined Arms represents veterans from all branches of the military, hence the team name, and also includes Brenna (our Sr. Vice) and Nicholle, who are both Life Members of VFW Post 3150. All of the proceeds raised by the team during this event goes to support various Team RWB programs aimed at enriching the lives of American veterans through social and physical activities.

VFW Post 3150 is proud to support Team Combined Arms and all of its members as they carry Old Glory, the preeminent symbol of strength and freedom, on a journey to connect communities across America.

We're updating the area with twenty new garden beds to increase accessibility for those who require wheelchair access.

The Day:

Our 9/11 Day of Service means a lot. It marks an important day. This September 9th, The Mission Continues Washington DC Service Platoons would like to invite John Lyon VFW Post 3150 members, auxiliary, and friends of the Post to join us as we do what we do; serve a cause greater than ourselves. Every year, in memory of this day, we will continue to rebuild- ourselves, our community, our country. 

The Cause:

UDC College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences is leading the community farming initiatives in DC. One of their sites, East Capitol Urban Farm, is a major step in connecting the community located in areas classified as 'food deserts' to sustainable, healthy foods. There are some important agriculture and natural resource leaders from other land-grant universities looking at the site as well, to figure out how to replicate our goals at other farms. So, our efforts on 9/9 will push East Capital Farm forward to operationally hosting local kids, the community, and education leaders to provide them with the fruits of their labors and teach them about the efficacy of sustainable, community farming.

Additional projects:

* Socialize community area to increase efficacy of training modules on the site for kids

* Engineer a STEM education space to enable the next generation of kids to learn about math and sciences

* Stand up a farmers market with the ability to host 4 vendors. Farmers market will be accessible by community members who require a handicap accessible space to make purchases at a SNAP and Wic eligible farm stand

* Finish the walking trail with markers in yards and meters as well as a place for the community to gather
