Veteran's Open House

The Mayor’s drop-in Veterans Service Center Open House is open to both Veterans and their Spouse from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on the Last Tuesday of each Month. The Veterans Service Center Open House has been moved permanently to the American Legion Post 440  and is free and open from 5:30-7:30 p.m. on the last Tuesday of the month  to be held at 295 California St Nonantum/Newton. We are excited to be joining all of you for a Post Holiday Party at the Veterans Service Center Open House on Tuesday, January 28th 2020 at Post 440. There are no longer any more meetings at the Senior-Center, and no meetings in May or June.

  • The Honorable Mayor Ruthanne Fuller invites the City residents, our invaluable veterans and their family and guests to attend and participate in the annual Veteran’s Day Observance on Monday November 11th, 2019 at the American Legion Post 440 on 295 California St. Each year we begin with a donation drive in conjunction with both Cell Phones for Soldiers and Operation American Soldier. Our donation drive begins at 10:00 AM with coffee and light snacks. We will provide children’s arts & crafts activities tables from the Newton Cultural Center sponsoring patriotic themes. Promptly at 11:00 we will begin our Observance Ceremony to include the Newton Police & Fire Honor Guard, Pledge of Allegiance, National Anthem, remarks from Mayor Fuller and our keynote speaker Lt. Col Ingrid Centurion U.S. Army. At the conclusion of our ceremony we will draw the raffle for the donation drive with an I-Pad Mini
