Inaugural VFW Day Of Service, East Helena

A Tale Of Community Unity

On May 4th in East Helena, the first-ever Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Day of Service unfolded with unexpected brilliance, transforming what could have been a mundane day into a remarkable display of community pride. Local troops – 218, 212, 214, 207, and Pack 212 – came together with VFW post 10010 in great numbers, dedicating themselves to cleaning up the area.

Their hard work was truly commendable, as they filled more than 30 bags with trash, leaving East Helena noticeably cleaner. The VFW recognized their efforts with a great picnic afterward, providing a well-deserved reward for their commitment to bettering their surroundings.

The community also rallied behind the Scouts, with those passing by offering donations as a token of appreciation for their service and words of gratitude for the Scouts’ hard work. This outpouring of support not only bolstered morale but also strengthened the bonds between the Scouting community and the residents of East Helena.

As the day concluded, it was evident that the inaugural VFW Day of Service had far exceeded expectations, laying the groundwork for future collaborations between the Scouting community and the VFW. I am so proud of the Scouts’ accomplishments and hard work.
