We meet every other month on the 4th Monday of the month, beginning in January of each year.

Donated bricks surround the Kent County Veterans Memorial ParkWe also support the Kent County Veterans Memorial Park which tributes Gold Star Mother and Families, those lost in Vietnam, Korea, and the Middle East. The park also contains a POW/MIA Chair of Honor, a War Dog memorial and a UH-1 “Huey” Dustoff helicopter perched on an 18-foot stand. The park is financed through the sale of memorial bricks. If you wish to honor a family member or loved one who served, buy a brick to support the memorials, visit the Support the Memorials page.

It’s that time of the year! Dover International Speedway is providing an awesome opportunity to service members and their families.
