Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1518

Posted By: Polly Buchanan (June 1, 2020)
VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) Post 1518 in Gaylord, MI is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization representing area veterans and their families and emphasizes improving their quality of life in our community. Encouraging outdoor activities to improve health and wellness is encouraged by our organization.

Last Fall a new covered pavilion with restrooms and electrical power was completed in our Veterans Community Park on Old 27 just north of McCoy Road. We want to offer free outdoor movie nights at the pavilion to encourage healthy family outings, picnics, and other gatherings in our park. To do this we need outdoor theater equipment that includes a projector, screen and sound system. The cost for this equipment is approximately $2000. If our request is granted for $1000, the remaining budget will come from fund raising and or/community sponsors. Free movie nights in our new park will be a unique offering in our community.
