After a one-year COVID 19 postponement, the annual NVC U.S. flag placing at Evergreen-Washelli Funeral Home & Cemetery was continued on Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. Over 350 flags were placed at the grave sites of Nisei Veterans. This year, the flags were placed primarily by the Boy Scouts, Cub Scouts, and their parents, from the Seattle Betsuin Temple Troop/Pack 252.
We can sure use your help with a few projects. Most can be done at home, at NVC Memorial Hall, or just about any other place that has Wi-Fi capability. One new project involves capturing the biographies of Nisei veterans buried at Evergreen-Washelli Cemetery (EWC).
The NVC Foundation Memorial Wall is your opportunity to honor any Japanese American who was interned during World War II or has served in our military by donating a granite brick in their name.
NVC has joined "Cup of Joe for a Joe", a Green Beans Coffee program that allows you to thank a member of the armed forces for their service with a hot, fresh cup of Green Beans Coffee and a personal message at over three dozen overseas bases where Green Beans Coffee has an outlet.
CALENDAR: Join us for the NVC & NVC Foundation Virtual Membership meetings. Our members meetings are usually held on the last Friday of each month. Please note: The NVC Board has elected to close use of the NVC Memorial Hall until further notice due to the Coronavirus/COVID-19 Pandemic.
