ABOUT US

Lake Villa VFW Memorial Post #4308 is a gathering place and community resource. We value service, our heritage, our members and the community. OUR MISSION: To foster camaraderie among United States veterans of overseas conflicts. To serve our veterans, the military, and our communities. To advocate on behalf of all veterans. We are always open to new Veterans and their families to join us.

Lake Villa VFW Memorial Post #4308 was founded in June of 1954 in the spirit of camaraderie. The Post has grown considerably over the years and retains approximately 200 members annually. We strive to maintain a welcoming atmosphere for veterans, their families and supporters.

Our post offers a canteen (open 7 days a week-daily specials), pool and horseshoes (we sponsor leagues for these activities), karaoke (3rd Friday each month), banquet hall, queen of hearts (Tuesdays and Fridays) and video gaming.

As a post we also work very hard to support our community. Some of our activities include: annual golf outing, local parades, supporting organizations such as the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts. Our post also comes together with our community to hold fundraisers for non-profit groups, which includes: Friends of the Library, the VA Hospital, Winchester House, National Home for Children, other VFW's, veteran groups and causes.

Annually, the nearly 2 million members of the VFW and its Auxiliaries contribute more than 8.6 million hours of volunteerism in the community, including participation in Make A Difference Day and National Volunteer Week. 

From providing over $3 million in college scholarships and savings bonds to students every year, to encouraging elevation of the Department of Veterans Affairs to the president's cabinet, the VFW is there.
