LVMAC News: “Salute to Troops” Banquet postponed to next year

February 9, 2021

The Board of LVMAC has met and decided to cancel this year’s “Salute to the Troops” annual banquet scheduled for early May.  As you might guess, the current pandemic and the  health safety instructions required have both affected making it a worthwhile event.

We expect to now hold the event on 6 May 2022 at the Steel Club in Hellertown.  Mark it down on your calendars now after washing your hands.

In the meantime, we are exploring alternative ways to salute the troops in the current environment.
