#Veteran Events & Announcements 1/11 to 1/28

Listed below are only the events I have for the next 14+ days here in the Metro Detroit area, of which there are 8 new items (we're into our slow time). You can also go to the Legion 328 website to download any flyer for these and future events (thru November) at  http://www.legionpost328.org/events.html Clicking on "attached flyer" for each event either below or on the future listing at the website will get you the flyer for that event.

If your group has an event benefiting veterans, or you hear of an event, please share with me so I can share with the veteran community.  I would rather get an event 3 times than not at all!  Please make sure any flyer lists address of event and a contact person!
