Memorial Day events

Memorial Day weekend was a beautiful and inspiring time for our VFW Day of Service at Golden Gardens Park in Ballard. Through continued service we pay tribute to our fallen friends and ensure that their sacrifices are not forgotten. Thank you to Councilmember Dan Strauss for taking time out of his busy schedule to join us!
Thank you to our post comrades for taking time this Memorial Day to give out Buddy Poppies to local community members. The Buddy Poppy serves as a powerful reminder of the valor and selflessness displayed by our servicemen and servicewomen. Its creation by veterans and its distribution by the VFW represents a collective effort to honor the fallen and support those who have served.
The post auxiliary also hosted its first pancake breakfast fundraiser on Memorial Day Weekend. We look forward to participating in more in the future!

Day of Service: May 27

Post 3063 is proud to participate in the National VFW’s Day of Service program. In May posts around the country are organizing service events in order to give back to their communities. We will do the same by picking up litter at Golden Gardens on May 27 at 2 pm. Comrade Jesse Basher has reserved a shelter on the north end of the park so be prepared to meet there or talk to him if you’re interested in shuttling from the Ballard Elks. Also bring a dish and beverages for the cookout. (We’ll provide the meat, buns and condiments…and also Gatorade, of course!)
