Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 4714 has recently sold its building and is looking for a new location in Northampton or the surrounding communities to house the honor guard.

VFW Post 4714 has been located in Northampton since 1945 and, during that time, served all veterans and the local community. Due to the lack of active members and the ongoing costs to maintain the VFW building, the building was sold. The VFW intends to keep the honor guard, but a location is needed to house uniforms and equipment as well as conduct monthly meetings.

Do you have a space for the VFW in your community? Call and leave a message at 610-262-3891.
