Cape Cod Veterans News

Members Nice email from member Vickki says it all, Happy Thanksgiving to all. Yesterday Paul me and Richie "The Saw" Sayers, CCVI's "Second Story Man" cut trees down, for a disabled Vet. Scene of the day was Paul "No problem, I can do that" Glynn, throwing a line with a hammer up to wrap around a branch and almost knocking "The Saw" off the roof. Paul dropped off $1,000 in $50 Gift Cards, to VA Readjustment Center to to help Veterans with Thanksgiving. CCVI also supplied the center with coffee, sugar, creamer, cups, bottled water, etc. Also bottled water at the Stevens St. Clinic. The government will not supply these items. Member Dave Collette will install new garage door for Disabled Vet, cost around $500, Dave got us a great deal, from the distributor he deals with. Congratulations to CCVI Board members and new grand parents Peggy and Terry Clen. A new plaque with stone will be dropped at Bourne National Cemetery on 11/11/2018. It will honor those who served in the Iraq / Afghanistan / Global War on Terrorism and those KIA and intered at Bourne. CCVI, Monti Foundation and Boston Wounded Run will pay for this. Cape Cod Stone who made the Monti Medal of Honor stones for us will do the work. Earlier this month Staff members invited to Boston Spaulding Rehab Center for dedication of New Rooms, Great line up of people/organizations who do "Grassroots work". President Glynn presented Spaulding with $2,000 check. This will be used for Veterans at Spaulding's Cape facility in Mashpee. Video of event was on Ch 5 Boston. Spaulding thanked CCVI for the annual Wounded Warfighters Fishing trips we run in Falmouth and Sesuit Harbor. This June, Executive Director Terry Clen took 94 Wounded Vets out, with dinner at the Boathouse Rest. afterwards with their "catch". This Spring the "By-Laws Committee" (TBD) will review our By-Laws to determine if changes are needed, or added? The changes will be sent to the IRS, MA A.G. and MA Corporation's for approval, after a membership vote. Remember the Eagle Pond Nursing Home Christmas Party is Dec, 16th 2-3 PM. Fantastic Kathleen Healy will be singing to the residents as our New "Santa" Horace Thayer ( Sam Franco, Santa for many years sadly passed this year) and "Elf" Joe Fallon, Amvets Post 333 will hand out gifts, all welcome. Members baking for this event, please let President Glynn know at the Dec. Meeting. CCVI and VFW Post 10274 Christmas Party is Dec. 20th at O'Sheas Olde Inn 5:30-700PM, music, lite fare, and libations are your responsibility. Note-President and Staff will cover the cost as CCVI is a Zero Compensation Organization and forbidden to use its funds for such activities. CCVI Security Chief Jack Griffith, will resume the "Sons of Ed Wood Movie Club" every Tuesday back room at O'Shea's, 5 PM, great movie so come on down, open to all! O'Shea's Wood Fest on Nov. 19th was great, enough wood was split and stacked for the season, thanks to all members who showed. Received numerous thank you letters, from donation we made the past 2 months. One in particular, will be read at the meeting with name/address redacted. Thank you members for all you do.
