Downstream Events Calendar October 2021Do You Know A Student Who Might Be Interested?

The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and VFW Auxiliary offer several scholarships that are available to students in grades 9 through 12.

The Scholarship program is not a new one, but it is so important. In these troubling times of our nation, it is important that we hear from our young people on what they think and how they feel about Patriotism and Americanism which is relayed through essays and art. We need to keep these ideas out there and encourage these students, who represent our future, to stay strong in Americanism and Patriotism ideals so our country does not lose the values of those men who wrote our Constitution.

Our Department President’s theme “Honoring Old Glory and Those Who Fight for It” is so fitting for this program. We need to remember what we stand for and honor those who are fighting and have fought to keep those values.

This program encourages Patriotism and Americanism to our students and offers awards to help them in attaining an education of their choosing. See story on page 16.
