JAMESTOWN – Established in 1943 as a place for veterans to meet, share meals and enjoy entertainment, War Vets Recreation, Inc. has a time honored tradition of being there for local veterans in many capacities. Recently, their generosity took the form of a donation to the Veterans Memorial Commission Relocation Fund.
Barclay Wellman, Major General United States Army (Retired), serves on the board at War Vets Recreation, Inc. as well as the Veterans Memorial Commission. “Moving the memorial from the high school to the new location (near Logan and Harding Avenues) has lots of costs involved,” Wellman said. “There need to be walkways, monuments and areas for people to come together and hold special ceremonies and remember why we are here.”
Located on Fluvanna Avenue in Jamestown, the Club offers membership to area veterans from every branch of the military. The Club also accepts auxiliary members; individuals who are directly related to veterans. For more information on membership contact the Club at 483.0222.
