Veterans Club – Did You Know?

The primary thrust of the Sun City Shadow Hills Veterans Club is to serve our community. Our members, after serving our country, now seek to serve the people where we live.

Programs the Veterans Club Sponsors During the Year

Most of you know about Toys for Tots that has collected over the years a minimum of 1,200 toys each year which in collaboration with the Marine Corp distributes these toys to children in our local area. The collection ends with a Pot Luck Dinner in early December. Shadow Hills High Scholl has provided entertainment for this function.

The Club sponsors a Memorial Day celebration each year with Joint Base 29 Palms providing a Chaplain. Speakers have been both military and civilian. Shadow Hills High School provides members of their ROTC for the flag raising ceremonies.

We also have a Veterans Day Pot Luck dinner which the community is invited to attend. Again, in collaboration with Shadow Hills High School the ROTC provides us with a flag detail.

The Veterans Club was instrumental in placing the flag pole at the Shadows Restaurant.

Veterans, join us the third Tuesday of each month at 7:00 PM in the Cambria Room at the Montecito Clubhouse. We are dark in July and August.
