Greater Pittston AMVETS Post 189’s Christmas Party is Dec. 14 in Dupont


DUPONT — The Greater Pittston American Veterans Post 189 will hold a Christmas party from 6 to 10 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 14 at the dance hall of the Dupont Hose Company, 308 Main St.

The party will consist of a full buffet and a variety of beverages while dancing to music supplied by a local DJ for a donation of $20.

The party is open to the general public and veterans alike.

Post 189, along with its Ladies Auxiliary, is working to bring holiday joy during the season to the veterans residing at the Gino Merli and the V.A. Medical Centers. For 10 years or more, Post 189 has sponsored veterans at both centers.

For $50, residents can “sponsor a vet,” allowing them to enjoy a night of good food, music and dancing, camaraderie, and the thrill of receiving gifts. For many, this may be the only time these men and women get out and the only gifts they receive during the holiday season.

Donations can be made by check and made payable to AMVETS Post 189 and addressed to Commander Bernard McDonald, 126 Main St., Dupont, PA 18641. Also, tickets to the party may be obtained by calling Commander McDonald at 570-817-4858 or Chaplain Richard White at 570-407-2044 or at the door.
