We consider every dues-paying or lifetime member to be an active member.  Your participation level is up to you.  Your support of the VFW enables us to continue our programs and aid to Veterans, their widows, and their children as well as the community.  You don't have to anything more, if you would rather not.  We will still check in on you from time to time to ensure you are doing well and to remind you of the comradery, fellowship, mentorship, aid, and friendship that is here if you need it!

Annual membership Dues $37 and due on the anniversary of the date you joined the VFW or the date of annual renewal.  We encourage you to extend your annual membership prior to the due date to avoid those phone calls and letters.  Renewing early does NOT change your next due date, so that's good!
A lifetime membership allows you to pay one total sum once or 11 monthly installments and be finished!  (The amount varies based on your age.)   This is the most cost effective way to be a VFW member!

The 2022-2023 theme will be announced this spring.  Keep looking on vfw.org for updates!
