The NE Georgia Veterans Jamboree is on September 14 at the Cornelia Community House. This is the third year for this event and it has been very popular with the local community.
The VFW is looking for sponsors for the event. Sponsors will get a banner at Jamboree and a banner that lasts for an entire year at the VFW post. Sponsors have until September 4 to get on the posters and banners!
$100 - $199 - Bronze
$200 - $499 - Silver
$500 - $999 - Gold
$1000+ - Platinum
The banner sponsors are a great advertising opportunity and the VFW helps our local veterans directly. They have Bingo nights at the VFW so people who come to play will also see these banners for an entire year.
The women's auxiliary also needs cake donations or $10-$20
for the cake walk. This would be great for a church
or individual to help with.
Interested? Call Post Commander Bill Miles at (706) 778-4981.
