A message from newly elected President Bob Weithofer:

Thank you for electing me your president. I greatly appreciate the vote of confidence and your trust.

I want to thank all of the current officers and those that just left office for their work to keep this chapter moving forward. Without their many hours of dedicated effort this chapter would not exist.

At our recent business meeting in Minot, several questions were asked about what we do as a chapter. This chapter is first and foremost a chapter of military veterans and active military.
  • We have a pre-rally before each FMCA Convention, twice a year. These pre-rallies provide an opportunity for social interaction among our members.
  • We provide color guards for National and Area rallies when requested.
  • We seek opportunities to recognize our veterans and active military and their families at all FMCA events.
  • We provide support for veterans and active military through donations and projects. We are looking to expand this role.

​This is your chapter. If you have questions or suggestions please feel free to contact me at

Thanks to the generous donations of those that attended the Tri-Chapter rally (MVC, Full-Timers, and Elks) we raised $300 for the YWCA Women and Children's shelter.  That check was presented to them on Monday, August 19th.   The pre-rally and the National Convention were hugely successful with many new members for each chapter.  Thank you everyone for your help and support.

Happy Fourth of July/Independence Day!

Happy Independence Day!
Happy Fourth of July!

Independence Day is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the Declaration of Independence of the United States on July 4, 1776. The Continental Congress declared that the thirteen American colonies were no longer subject to the monarch of Britain and were now united, free, and independent states. The Congress had voted to declare independence two days earlier, on July 2, but it was not declared until July 4.

Happy Canada Day! 
Bonne fête du Canada!
The MVC is proud of our Canadian veterans and military. July 1st is Canada Day. Canada Day is the national day of Canada, just like Independence/Fourth of July is in the United States. Canada Day is a federal statutory holiday, it celebrates the anniversary of July 1, 1867, the effective date of the Constitution Act, 1867, which united the three separate colonies of the Province of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick into a single Dominion within the British Empire called Canada. Originally called Dominion Day, the holiday was renamed in 1982, the year the Canada Act was passed. Canada Day celebrations take place throughout the country, as well as in various locations around the world, attended by Canadians living abroad.
