VFW Post 448 invites veterans and non-members to march with the Post in the Fourth of July Parade on Friday, July 4, as well as the Veterans Day and Memorial Day parades each year.

With the aging membership of the VFW, each year there are fewer members able to march in the parades.

Those interested in marching with VFW Post 448 can join the Post lineup at 9 a.m. on Wendell Avenue; report to Commander Arnold Perras. Uniforms or military caps are optional.

VFW Post 448 is also offering a free $50 one-year membership for new members. Information: Perras at (413) 443-0309.
