A special thank you to the Westport Garden Club and Izzo & Son Country Gardens for their gracious support and flower donation to VFW Post 399. The donation of support this year certainly helped celebrate our planned Memorial Day events for 2022! We can’t do all, can’t do it alone and can’t do it without your help.
The VFW Post 399 kitchen needed a fresh paint job for a long time. To the rescue, Westport Scout Troop 100 volunteered to help with the kitchen clean up and expertly completed a beautiful paint job this week. In addition to earning merit badges, every Scout is required to formulate, organize and execute a project that benefits the community and have it approved by the council office. A special thank you to Troop 100 for all their dedication, determination and hard work in support of the Joseph J. Clinton VFW Post 399 kitchen project!
On Tuesday, June 14th the Westport Senior Center during the Flag Day Ceremony recognized the local Korean War Veterans for their service to our great nation. VFW Post 399 membership Phil Delgado, Quartermaster and Bob Tirreno, Service Officer, participated in the event by leading the Pledge of Allegiance.
Attendees included Lieutenant Governor Susan Bysiewicz, state Commissioner of Veterans Affairs Thomas Saadi and First Selectwoman Jen Tooker presided at the ceremony. The ranks of our brave Korean War veterans are diminishing everyday!
