Important Info for Post29 Members

56th Annual VFW Santa Parade UPDATES

With the ongoing COVID19 pandemic and social distancing requirements we have opted to cancel the annual VFW Santa Parade and instead usher Santa around the city on the back of a fire truck. Santa will be making his way around the City while making 6 short stops in order to see more kids and to aid in the collection of new toys and food items for various food pantries serviced by the annual Betsy Conti Food Drive that happens at each parade.

Veterans Day Chicken Dinner

We are hosting a free chicken dinner to be delivered to Haverhill Veterans on Saturday 7 Nov 2020.
