Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 1019 is hosting our Annual Christmas Party at the Elk’s Lodge, where we have our meetings, on December 20th, from 6pm-11pm. We will have a buffet style dinner beginning at 7pm and a “pay for your own drinks” bar. You can bring your own bottle, but there is a small charge to mix the drinks; bottles have to be left at the bar. We will have door prizes, 50/50 raffle and a brief awards ceremony. We did mail out invitations and we hope you received yours. Please let us know if you will be coming and bringing any guests as soon as possible. We’ll have music, a dance floor, good food, good friends and a great atmosphere with fun and surprises for everyone!

We all hope to see you there!!

Peace and Joy,

VVA 1019 Officers and Board Members~
