VFW completes handicapped lift

The Merrimack VFW Post 8641 is close to completing our mission to “Give A Vet A Lift” at the Merrimack VFW-Post 8641. It has been a remarkable journey due to the overwhelming generosity of many. Please join us in celebration of the opening of the elevator – a three-platform lift – on Friday, Nov. 11, beginning at 3 p.m. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony; 6-7 p.m., cocktails; 7 p.m., appreciations and pot luck dinner; and 7:30 p.m., music by The Miner Band.

What was once a vision of the few has now become a reality due to the efforts and contributions of many. It certainly has been an uplifting and rewarding experience. We hope you join us for this momentous occasion to celebrate that the Merrimack VFW is now handicapped accessible.

Please bring a side dish or dessert to share at this celebration.

On behalf of team DAVE (for Disabled American Veterans Everywhere), we thank you all.
