Mr. Richard Moore, the Chairman of our Scholarship Committee, has announced that the LVMAC scholarship application period started 15 March and will end 31 May 2017. Applications postmarked after 31 May will not be considered.
Some changes have been made to the program for this year. Among them, military veterans’ Title 10 active duty service time after training is a consideration and children who are willing to render military service as junior officers will receive a higher priority for consideration than other categories of children. We wish to promote military service. While the awarding of sixteen scholarships is planned, the actual amount awarded to an individual may be higher than the $1,000 to be expected, depending on the merit of his or her situation. A new procedure has been established for this.

It will occur on 10 November 2016 between the hours of 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. It is but another unique offering from A’s for Vets — something for which it is becoming known. This event is open to any veteran seeking education and/or employment. It is not open to the general public. Read the rest of this entry »

Whereas this once again a last minute notification for finding veterans to interview, the Ritter Elementary School in Allentown does conduct a well-regarded program worth a veteran’s contribution of his or her time to its students. Interviews occur 4 October. Therefore, sign up now. See below for more information and who to contact.
The result of your effort will ultimately lead to one of the premier, annual Veterans Day period events in the Lehigh Valley. This award-winning program was started over thirty years ago by a Principal and his teachers — well before the current war made appreciating our veterans popular — and has become part of the institutional culture of the school. Help make that continue.

Volunteers are needed for the Veterans Reading Brigade. The demand has been increasing and we now have too few volunteers.
The concept is simple. Each reader is provided a book to read to a class of school children. Often the children enjoy asking questions about your military service. The book is then donated to the classroom library. It’s that easy!
This volunteer opportunity requires a minimal time commitment. You can volunteer to read as many or as few times throughout the year as your schedule allows.
If interested, please contact Robin Carmody at 610-972-7371 or email@example.com.
