The Lititz VFW Auxiliary held their annual POW/MIA Recognition Ceremony last week in Lititz Springs Park as part of National POW/MIA Recognition.  The solemn event included a candlelight vigil, several speakers, a tolling bell for those still missing as well as an empty table set to honor those who never came home. Approximately 100 people attended the ceremony to participate and remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice. 

President Chris Caruthers received a check for Wreaths Across America at Indiantown Gap National Cemetery from Shawn Taylor and staff from Argires Marotti Associates
At Lititz National Nite Out, the Auxiliary was there getting posters signed with pictures and thank you notes for our first responders.  

Lititz VFW and its Auxiliary will be hosting a candlelight ceremony on National POW/MIA Day, September 15, 2017 at 7:00 p.m. in the Lititz Springs Park Gazebo. We will have the setting of the POW/MIA Table, guest speakers, and the reading of names of the Lancaster County loved ones who are still missing.  A vocalist and honor guard will also be helping to make this an evening to remember.  Please come join us to let the world know that we will never forget. 

Thanks go to the Lancaster Moravian Church Members for their support of the Lititz VFW Auxiliary's Wreaths Across America Fundraiser. All proceeds go to Indiantown Gap National Cemetery's effort to make sure every grave has a wreath this Christmas.  Clyde Snyder founder of VET 21 Honor Salute Guard also attended in support of a great cause.

Even in the rain the clothing drive was a success. Thanks to all who gave us clothing and a big thank you to all who worked it. 

This year at Shop for a Cause at Park City Center the Auxiliary was there all day educating the public on Wreaths Across America and how important it is to say the Name of the person who has passed.
