The members of Post 619 Jewish War Veterans in Sun Lakes will be meeting at 9:30 a.m. on May 17 in the Mirror Room of the Sun Lakes Country Club. The speaker will be Paula Pedene. Paula has been involved as the originator of the Phoenix Veterans Day Parade, the fourth largest in the U.S. with over 40,000 spectators. Many post members have been involved with some being recognized as Grand Marshall’s. On April 9 the post fed about 100 turkey luncheons for veterans that have graduated the VA addiction programs. The post is active all year long and inquiries are answered all year long from any person regardless of race, religion or gender. Many participants in the post are not Jewish but want to help veterans and this post works tirelessly to help homeless and in need veterans with many persons taking part in the Maricopa StandDown in February.
