Veterans Advisory Council

The Veterans Advisory Council (VAC) is a single-point Veteran information and advice resource for Lower Southampton residents and Veterans, Municipal Agencies, and the Board of Supervisors.

The VAC either has the information, or access to information needed by these entities.

The VAC tracks and distributes information about local, county, state and federal Veteran resources and events and works closely with other Veteran organizations to provide information.

In the past year the VAC has distributed donated funds to individuals and veteran outreach programs that were in need.

These funds help support local, regional and national veteran programs.

The Delaware Valley Veteran Nursing Home, the Bucks County Veteran’s Court & Mentoring Program, Operation First Response Veteran Brotherhood, Salute2Service, and the Travis Manion Foundation are some of the recipients of last year’s grants.

They hope to continue to improve their outreach and supports to our American Hero’s and their families.

The VAC offers a number of events in which they honor and provide information to the Veterans of Lower Southampton and beyond.

2019 Events:

*On April 13th at 10:00am, join us at the Neshaminy Activity Center for the Eighth Annual Veterans Muster.

*Then in June join us for a Flag Retirement Ceremony at Playwicki Farm.

*In September put on your running shoes and get moving during the 9/11 Heroes Run at Russell Elliott Park.

*End the year by joining us on November 11th for a Veterans Day Sunset Retreat Ceremony at Playwicki Farm honoring all who serve.
