Post #199 Programs
Spring Valley DARE
Our members support the Spring Valley PD Dare program with a fund raising spaghetti dinner every spring. All funds go toward supplementing the DARE program initatives.
The Post also supports, either with donations or active participation, in a number of local activities including Meal on Wheels, Spring Valley H.S. Thespian Players, Rockland County Civil Air Patrol and Ramapo H.S. JRROTC.
Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 333
Many of our Post #199 members are also members of VVA Chapter 333 and members of both units participate together in several activities. These activities include the Memorial Day Watch Fires, Veterans Day Service, Rainbow Connection Child Learning Center delivering toys at Christmas and Easter egg hunt.
See our Photo Gallery for pictures of the Rainbow Connection Child Learning Center Christmas Party sponsored by members of VVA Chapter 333 and AL Post #199. Santa (aka Commander Bruce Wichtendahl) and his elves had a great time entertaining the kids.
The Children & Youth Programs features "Memories, Stories Left at the Wall" which is a traveling museum that educates children about the Vietnam War and Era. To date, over 70,000 students and parents have seen thus far.
