The FAV operates independently of either the Veterans or Ladies Auxiliary members of the Athenia Veterans Post. The activity of this organization is bound only by the “imagination and interest” of its membership. However it must be remembered that any organizational rules or function must not be contrary to the beliefs, bylaws, and operations of the Athenia Veterans Post. “WE CAN DO IT!” is the general philosophy of this organization. We appreciate new ideas. New ideas keep any organization “vibrant”. We also respect the opinions and beliefs of fellow members. Any seriously suggested idea will be reviewed as the situation permits.
The FAV primarily assists the Veterans of the Athenia Veterans Post in achievement of their specific goals. Recognition of the service these veterans have supplied to our nation is strongly appreciated by the membership of the FAV. Of course, it is known that many individuals have personal commitments and issues. The FAV has no intention of interfering with anyone’s method of employment, commitments to family, or contentions with their personal or religious beliefs.
FAV meetings are held once per month. Committees may meet more frequently depending upon the event under development.
