We will be open October 31 as planned ... though we have limited goods at this time, we are working to get more items. The D.O.D. is not available to us any longer and all efforts to get into the D.O.D. through our politicians has failed. Needless to say, Washington has once again shown itself to not be the place to go for Veteran's needs. So we are looking for local sources and believe that is the area we will get help from. So feel free to come down and get what we have and we also ask for your patience as we look for new sources. We as Veterans want to thank all of you Veterans for your service and look forward to meeting all of you that come to us for assistance. We will welcome you with coffee and donuts as well as a place to feel free to just enjoy the presence of your fellow Veterans.
Hope to see you soon!

Our last day of operation for the season will be MAY 2nd .... WE WILL OPEN AGAIN ON THE 31st of OCTOBER and continue through April 2015 as long as there is a need for our service. We hope to have the situation with our supply problem solved by next season.
Those of you with petition forms, please get them back to us by the end of April.
Thanks to all of you who support us.

We are currently preparing petitions to circulate at local VFW's, American Legion, as well as other Vet organizations. If you would like a petition to circulate at your location let me know and we can arrange to get you one. The petition will be a sign up sheet and will have 16 blanks for signatures on each page. I just need to know how many pages you can get filled. These petitions will be sent to Senator Collins in Maine and Senator Ayotte in N.H. ... We hope to have a few thousand signatures to voice the need for them to help us continue to receive goods from the D.O.D. as we have for the past 16 years. If they do not make an effort to help us then our program will end. So please help by calling your Senator (numbers are listed below) and requesting their help. We only have strength and a voice if we band together. So let's make this happen.

Attention: We are currently having a problem receiving goods from the DOD. Seems to be a policy shift not in our favor. We have contacted Senator Collins for assistance ... so please call or email Senator Collins to support our call for assistance. Those of you who belong to any Veteran's organizations, now is the time to use the voice of your organization to appeal to Senator Collins for help so that we may once again receive orders and serve you. Veterans must unite to receive our benefits, this includes the inventory at the DOD which we have been able to access for the past 16 years, Don't let Washington policies be our demise.

This past Friday we were lucky enough to meet and provide service to Earl W. Bell ... He is a World War II veteran who served from 1943 to 1945 in China and Burma. Earl is 96 years old and still on the move. His daughter brought him to us and told us he exercises every day in her barn by walking laps and marking each lap with a stick to help him keep count. We are honored to have met him.
Earl is pictured below shaking hands with volunteer Carl Merrill.
