Since our inception, the St. Michael's All Airborne Chapter participated in community events that promote military service, patriotism and assistance for veterans. Our members are engaged in helping our veterans and deployed airborne units. We also work with our local High School JROTC programs to recognize deserving cadets and present them with the 82nd Airborne Division JROTC Medal and certificate.
The Chapter accomplishes its mission by conducting fund raisers to generate funds to assist our veterans with much needed financial help. Our Chapter conducted two very successful Gun Raffles that generated not only money but added members to our roster.
The St. Michael's All Airborne Chapter participated in the Catawba County Fair, Wings Over Monroe Air Show and other venues to generate awareness to our mission, solicit donations and recruit new members.
Our Chapter was honored to participate in the Foothills Veterans Stand Down at Catawba Valley Community College. This event was for veterans who were homeless, jobless, and other Veterans in need. We encountered paratroopers and other veterans in need of services.
Once a year the Chapter gets together for our Holiday Social where we celebrate the holidays with members, friends and families. During this social we highlight the year's events and recognize members for their dedication to the Chapter and its mission.
September 28, 2019
10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
Our September meeting and lunch will be 28 September, 1000-1200 at a SUPER Veteran-oriented establishment, B-52, located at 206 North College Avenue, Newton, NC. This new restaurant hangs photos of local Veterans around the establishment, and they have encouraged our members to bring a picture of you in a black 5x7 frame with your name written on the back. Bring one of yourself in uniform, and we'll see if they can locate our Chapter pictures together.
This will also be the first meeting where our newest member, Brian Barnes, will attend. Come meet this great young 101st Airborne Combat Veteran.
