The following is a list of the things VVA Chapter 637 has accomplished over the past few years:

Chapter 637 is raffling off a Beretta Pin Tail 12 Gauge 3", 3 shot Automatic shotgun to raise
monies to send [personal care items to the troops in Iraq ands Afghanistan. We are trying to locate some addresses for some of our units that are deployed there from our area. U-Haul is donating the boxes we will need to ship the items. The local K-Marts and Wal-Mart stores are allowing us to sell tickets in front of their stores. Lowe's has also allowed us to use their local store.
 The shotgun will be given away on Nov. 3rd at the Patriots Day Banquet at Gadedens convention Hall. We are also going to dedicate our Memorial on that day. All VVA members and Officers are invited. Tickets to the Luncheon are available from Rick Vaughan, Frank Estes and are $8.00 each. Our speaker is going to be the Assistant head of the National Veterans Administration.
 

The cost is $2.00 per ticket or 11 for $20.00. The gun will be given away at our annual Patriots Day Luncheon on November the 3rd.

We Have a picnic on Labor Day each year at Attalla City Park starting at 10:00 AM. We invite everyone to come out and eat. It is totally free-----
