Important Information

From the HCVVO President’s Desk

We ask that Howard County Vietnam Veterans Organization members show respect to one another, regardless of the circumstances. The board recognizes that while some continue wearing COVID-19 masks and offering fist bumps, others want to hug their brothers and sisters. We invite members to act in their best interest, use common sense, and respect each other’s choices. Stay home if you feel sick or have coronavirus symptoms.

We will assume those who visit the Healing Fields without a mask have a medical condition that prohibits its use, and we cannot legally ask about the condition. Meanwhile, each campsite is 20 feet by 40 feet, allowing enough space to camp solo or with a group while adequately social distancing. We also provide hand sanitizer in the Big Room, Beer Barn, and General Store and provide masks upon request.

Let’s work together toward the following goals to help our organization prosper: 

  1. Reduce spending to meet required payments
  2. Retain more people involved in all aspects of the HCVVO
  3. Regain members, merchants, and vendors offended or driven away

I challenge each member to help bring our finances back to solvency and prepare our organization for a Sandbox. Donate what you can today!
