Twenty-three years of hard work and dedication has made this campground and area possible. Come and enjoy the fruits of this labor and the friendship of your veteran buddies.
Check out our Web Site at “ lzfriendly.org “ where we are building a new site and would appreciate your input.
Monthly meeting still held on the last SATUTDAY of each month except JULY and DECEMBER at 11:00AM. PLEASE come and break bread with us and be a part of this great organization. We need each one of you to keep the lifeblood alive.
There have been recent discussion and meetings of the board concerning the disposition of the L.Z, Friendly holdings.
Of great concern is the dwindling number of members, lack of new members and member support of the organization in maintaining the grounds and structures. Old soldiers do die and that is of great concern.
All members should try to attend these meetings. The advice and suggestions of each member is needed so a possible solution can be made to avoid the demise of our lands. Or all the effort in the past will not be lost.
WELCOME HOME AND MAY GOD BLESS EACH AND EVERY ONE OF YOU
