Post 619 Jewish War Veterans meeting notice

Art Sloane

The members of Post 619 Jewish War Veterans in Sun Lakes will be meeting at 9:30 a.m. on April 19 in the Mirror Room of the Sun Lakes Country Club. The speaker will be Melissa Mierdiercks from the Veterans Administration Community Resource and Referral Center. This is the group of over 20 VA personnel that works with the homeless veteran population.

On April 9 the post will be feeding about 100 turkey luncheons for veterans that have graduated the VA addiction programs. In February the group had a pizza party for the veterans at the Arizona State Veterans Home.

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.

For information on the post call Elliot Reiss at 480-802-3281. For reservations for the brunch that precedes the meeting call Myra Buckner at 480-305-0533.
