  • VFW Prepares To Celebrate 75 Years; Public Invited To Diamond Jubilee, Sunday

    VFW members and supporters often stand on the corner of Mile Hill Road and Main Street South to show their patriotism when events such as The CT United Ride, an annual motorcycle ride that honors those lost on 9/11, runs past the post as it moves through Newtown. It is just one way the VFW Post has been part of the community since it was chartered in March 1939. The public is invited to join current and former members to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the post on Sunday, March 2.
