    VFW Post 433 Hosts Holiday Party for Hospitalized Vets

    For well over 15 years Sayville VFW Post 433 has hosted a Holiday Party for Hospitalized Veterans at its Post on Lakeland Avenue.

    This year’s party was held on December 5th and we welcomed veterans from the Northport VA Hospital, the State Veterans Home at Stony Brook and The Arbors Assisted Living Center to remind them once again, how grateful we for their service.  Post members and their families were joined by students from the Sayville High School History Club, and St. Joseph the Worker’s Confirmation class and the Sayville Country Dancers who helped us provide a spirited Holiday Celebration.

    We were thrilled to have the United States Army’s 42nd Infantry Division Band join us for the entire day.  They entertained us all day with a variety musical selections and songs, encouraging many of those in attendance to join in singing many of Holiday favorites and Christmas Carols.

    We send a special thanks out to Post 433 member Eric Rivera and his family for bringing Spencer, their Golden Retrieve with them as they have every year since Eric joined our Post.  Spencer is a special dog who owns a special place in the Veteran’s hearts as she visits every table, providing love and attention to everyone and, of course, appreciating their displays of affection towards her.  She demonstrates to all of us what it means to give “unconditional love” to those around her and we love having her at our functions.

    Santa Claus made his annual visit to the Post, bearing gifts for our special gifts, who all became honorary members of VFW Post 433 and were given sweatshirts displaying our logo to affirm their status.

    Once again Post 433 thanks everyone who made this such a special day for our fellow veterans.
