Veterans looking for camaraderie and a way to serve the community should attend the Johns Creek Veterans Association (JCVA) Membership Open House March 8-9 at Park Place at Newtown Park.
On Saturday, March 8, the Open House will run from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. On March 9, the Open House is scheduled from noon to 3 p.m. JCVA members will be on hand to answer questions about the organization and how to join. Pizza, snacks and drinks will be available.
The JCVA, founded in 2012, serves as an independent veterans group and resource about veteran benefits and entitlements. It also plans activities and events tailored for former military personnel.
Among its activities: a Gwinnett Braves game; a North Georgia winery tour; an honorary Color Guard; and the upcoming Johns Creek Veterans Golf Tournament on March 24, a fundraiser for one of its biggest projects – The John Creek Veterans Memorial Walk.
The Veterans Memorial Walk, scheduled to open later this year in a tranquil place in Newtown Park, will be a place to reflect on the sacrifice and service of those in uniform, and will serve as a focal point for patriotic activities in Johns Creek.
JCVA members are also video-recording the stories of veterans' experiences in the military for an oral history project.
