Veteran Christmas Party on Thursday, December 23, 2021

by: Jessica Harrington

With much excitement, a group of volunteers is happy to announce that there will be a Veteran Christmas Party happening a few days before Christmas! This Christmas Party is a free event that aims to bring local veterans and their guests together to meet other fellow veterans, make new friends, provide ongoing resources and support, while acknowledging their service to this great country. This Veteran Christmas Party will be held at the AMVets Post 147 & VFW Lorraine Post 29, 576 Primrose Street, Haverhill, MA, on Thursday, December 23, 2021, from noon – 2 pm. The planning committee would like to extend an invitation to all veterans from Haverhill and the surrounding communities.

This Christmas Party would not be possible without the help and support from several different organizations: Amvets post 147, Disabled American Veterans Chapter 20, VFWLorrainePost29, Marine Corps League, Korean War Veterans Association Chapter 294, American Legion Post 4, Merrimack Valley Hope Mission~ , Disabled and Limbless Veterans, Veterans Northeast Outreach Center, Middlesex County Deputy Sheriffs Association, Middlesex Deputy Sheriffs Association, Winchester Knights of Columbus Council 210, Eammon’s Heart, Market Basket, and more.

The event will include a delicious meal including  ham, mac & cheese, green beans, a dinner roll, and assorted desserts. The meal is being sponsored by the Fusco family, in memory and honor of Anthony J Fusco. Anthony was always extremely passionate about honoring the service of our veterans. Mr. Fusco was an active of the The Exchange Club of Greater Newburyport and one of the original organizing forces behind the Field of Honor program held yearly in Newburyport.  The Field of Honor displays more than 300 flags and honors those serving on active duty, first responders, and all those who have become heroes in our lives through their actions. Since his passing, Anthony Fusco has been honored with the placement of  Flag 1 in the first row of the annual display.
