Chewelah VFW Post 2047 received the National Outstanding Community Service Award which was announced at the VFW national convention in July 2016.
Each year, the VFW Department of Washington picks one post that excels in its community service efforts. Chewelah’s VFW post has put in plenty of work. In 2016 the local post put in 1,082 volunteer hours, drove 3,670 miles and gave the equivalent of $2,750.80 in donations.
This did not go unnoticed as the VFW Department of Washington selected the Chewelah Post as the Washington State winner of the award.
