Get Involved

General Membership Meetings are held the first Wednesday of the month Noon-1 PM at the Richfield Legion. Guests are encouraged!


Volunteers make a tremendous impact on the lives of those who serve. Whether you give a few hours a month, set aside time to participate in a social event or take part in any of the countless other opportunities on a one-time, part-time or regular basis, you can make a real difference in Minnesotan’s soldiers and their family’s lives. We invite you to join and explore the volunteer opportunities with the Vessey Chapter.

There are many opportunities in Minnesota to reach out, support and connect with other military families – especially Gold Star Families. Please share these events with the families of fallen heroes you may know and people or organizations that may not know of these events and may help support them and participate at them. If you have an event to promote visit our facebook page or send to  Thank you!
