AmVets perform for Beaver Island

The AmVets have established themselves as a major positive force on Beaver Island!

In 2002, local post #46 accomplished many goals through its programs–pancake breakfasts and a pork roast. Because of the fantastic support of the community, the AmVets were able to provide three separate scholarships to second-year college students, and also contribute funds to the Beaver Island Community School, sponsor and fund an Easter Egg Hunt for Island children, and help fund a Christmas party for the kids at the Emerald Isle Hotel. From the spring to early fall it participated in monthly Harbor Clean-ups starting at Whiskey Point and going to the Parish Hall. It placed flags on the graves of deceased veterans at both Island cemeteries, and placed flags–supplied by the Bissell Corporation–on various village sites. The AmVets have received much support, for which they are thankful.

For 2003, AmVets Post 46 asks you to mark these dates in your schedule. For pancake breakfasts: May 25, July 6, August 3, August 31, and October 5. The ever-popular pig roast will be held on Saturday, August 16th. On August 2nd, at the Parish Hall, there will be “A Trip Down Memory Lane,” a sock hop with poodle skirts, white bucks, and bow ties.
