On 9 December, 2015, the War Veterans Assistance Group finalized the awarding of a Rob Gronkowski Autographed Football and the winner was Kathy Harrison. Nearly 200 tickets were sold and when the drawing occurred, there were a lot of disappointed folks on hand but the winner is very happy to have been drawn and expressed that her sons will be very pleased to be the recipients of this treasured item that they will receive for Christmas from their mom! We want to thank everyone that participated in the raffle and look forward to offering more rare sports memorabilia in the near future…all in an effort to raise money to help out Vermont Veterans! Thank you to the New England Patriots Organization and the Craft Family for their generous support and thank you to everyone who bought the raffle tickets in order to make this event a huge success!
On 22 May, 2016, WVAG held a golf tournament at the Enosburg Falls Country Club. The tournament was a huge success and everyone enjoyed the day while raising money in support of Vermont Veterans who may be experiencing difficult times. The day was a tribute to the huge support base in northern Vermont for all Veterans in the Green Mountain State. Golfers were treated to a meal, prizes and several contests were held to help raise additional funds for the cause. Family members, friends and acqaintences experienced 18 holes of golf on a fantastic golf course, a great meal, prizes and raffles to include a round trip air fare to any domestic USA city sponsored by Jet Blue, a silent auction for a signed Tom Brady photograph, giveaways and too many other things to mention…even an opportunity to win a car and another to win $10,000! What a great day of fun and just a “feel good”time for everyone! Thank you to all of our sponsors and friends who volunteered their time and money to make this tournament a great success! Here are a few photos of the day’s activities for you to look at, laugh at and generally see the fun time had by all!
The Classic Mike Loyer Foundation contributed $1000 to War Veterans Assistance Group for the second year in a row on Wednesday, July 15, 2015. The Foundation supports local causes and has been a great supporter of War Veterans Assistance Group, Incorporated… helping Vermont Veterans!
Members of both organizations were on hand for the presentation and each offered words of support for Vermont’s Veterans and their families. Each year, since it’s creation, the Classic Mike Loyer Foundation has raised thousands of dollars for their cause and play a key role in the Burlington community and surrounding areas providing much needed assistance to families who have lost a loved one to a tragic accident in the work place or an untimely death was experienced in the family. The Foundation, is named after it’s name sake, Mike Loyer who died tragically in a construction accident. WVAG would like to take this opportunity to thank the Foundation and it’s Board members for their unending desire to help people in need! Thank you to them for their donation!

Steve Girvan passed away on 10 February 2015 from leukemia. Steve was a member of the US Navy and served in both the Vietnam War and the Persian Gulf. He was not only a good friend but a fierce advocate for veterans and their families. Steve was a vice-president of War Veterans Assistance Group, Incorporated and will be missed by all of us here at WVAGVT. We just want to reflect on a life well lived and a dear friend lost to us…but who will remain with us in spirit forever! God speed “Chief” and we know, in our hearts, that you’re preparing things for the rest of us to follow! Should be one hell of a golf game!!
