Season’s Greetings (Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, whatever you chose to celebrate this time of year) from AMVETS Post 44


We are having a craft event for children with our partner Lowe’s on Saturday, December 14th at the South Avenue store in Boardman at 9:00 am. The event is open for children 5-12, please call the post at 330-755-3333 to leave a name and age of the child. They will be making bird houses or planters. (This is not a drop off event, an adult needs to stay in the store during the activity). This is a free event.


On Saturday, December 14- stop by the post and watch the Army-Navy Game and help us step up the hall for Shop With A Cop scheduled for Sunday morning at 7:00 am. We host the event sponsored by The Struthers, Campbell, and Lowellville Police Departments for under privileged children. If you wish to help with the event, just show up, we’ll find something for you to help with.


On the evening of December 23, take a break from shopping and preparing for Christmas and join us in recognizing the service of Struthers President of Council Hank D. Franceschelli, SR and Councilman Mike Patrick (Monday is their last Council Meeting) . The band Vintage Vinyl will be playing for your entertainment.


The post canteen will be open until 8:00 pm on Christmas Eve and closed on Christmas Day. We will reopen on Friday December 26 at 4:00pm.
