Welcome to Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) Chapter 993 Homepage! March has been designated by Nevada Governor Sandoval as Veterans Month. March 29th has been designated nationally as Vietnam Memorial Remembrance Day. To commemorate this day, Chapter 993 will be handing out Vietnam Poppies and soliciting donations at area merchants that day. We need volunteers to assist with this funding raising project along with other projects planned for the month of March. Please contact Chapter President Craig Dickason if you are available to volunteer and for further information on these poppies.
Cowboy Kenny’s Steel Rodeo service project was a huge success, thanks to all those who volunteered. Their many efforts are greatly appreciated. The Chapter was able to provide service to the Eureka Casino, host for this project, by serving as security and event staff. Watch this website for pictures of this event. The Eureka was very generous to those who volunteered, making sure they stayed adequately hydrated and providing meals. Each volunteer was rewarded with buffet services. This was a great opportunity for the chapter to give back to a community partner who ao generously supports the VVA.
We are pleased to announce that the Raffle has returned to our general membership meetings. Many generous Mesquite merchants have donated products and services to make this possible. We appreciate all who have been so generous. Ticket prices will be $1.00 for one ticket or $5.00 for six tickets. Come ready to buy as many tickets as you would like and join in the fun while the chapter adds to their treasury at the same time!
