The Veterans of Foreign Wars, national organization, has agreed to officially support the 100M / 100C program as a supporting organization.
The 100C/100M program managers are busy preparing resources especially tailored to the VFW regional and local posts. This will include:
- A 1-page 100C/100M program overview
- An implementation guide that helps outline the steps for participation
- A pocket presentation - Really more of a crib sheet - that regional and local members can use to present the program to fellows, associates and associated organizations.
- An overview on the Memorial Hunters Club.
This is very exciting news for the program as we have less than 6 months left for teams to identify, organize and submit matching grant applications for consideration.
Look for more news and newly available resources between now and the Holiday, and get ready to get underway as we hit the new year of 2017! There are already a number of VFW teams that have contacted us with questions and we look forward to supporting your projects and memorial restorations. We will also be encouraging local VFW posts to join with their communities in helping us identify their local WWI memorials through the Memorial Hunters Club.
VFW members - Welcome aboard! and thank you.
