Newnan and Coweta County's Gathering Place for Veterans

The Coweta Veterans Club is located just outside of Newnan, in Coweta County, Georgia. We were founded on April 5, 1948 as a home for Coweta County's American Legion and VFW Posts.

WHO WE ARE

We are: Veterans. Citizens. Families.

The Coweta Veterans Club primarily serves Coweta County. Our membership rolls include comrades who served our country during war-time from World War II to the current conflicts in Afghanistan and around the world.

On April 5, 1948, the Coweta Veterans Club was incorporated with the objective of "promoting social fellowship and companionship among its members." Membership is restricted to comrades in good standing of VFW Post 2667 and American Legion Post 57. The property and buildings that currently house those two veterans organizations was donated to the Coweta Veterans Club to foster that objective.

The Club is also home to:
  • American Legion Ladies Auxiliary, Unit 57
  • American Legion Riders, Unit 57
  • Sons of the American Legion, Unit 57

OUR MISSION

We are dedicated to supporting those who sacrifice so much for this country - veterans, service members in the US Armed Forces and their families. To fulfill our mission:
  1. Through the VFW and American Legion we provide advocacy to the individual veteran. This is for both the veteran and his/her family. Our Post Service Officer is an well-versed at dealing with the Department of Veterans Affairs.
  2. We assist currently deployed military and their families. This includes supporting family readiness group activities, welcome home ceremonies, phone cards to deployed service members and financial assistance to meet the emergency needs that arise from deployments.
  3. We develop the next generation of patriots by sponsoring educational and patriotic activities in the community. We support our local JROTC and scouting programs.
  4. Our goal is to stay focused locally. National programs do a lot of good, but our calling is to help within our community; in Coweta County.
WHAT WE DO... IN THE COMMUNITY

We are our membership. The membership of American Legion Post 57 and VFW Post 2667 chooses to actively participate in our community.
  1. We sponsor, with the support of the VFW and American Legion Posts, the Coweta Veterans Club Open golf tournament with proceeds going to support the Coweta Cancer Support Group. 
  2. We provide flag-folding and speakers for funerals and/or memorial services for deceased veterans.
  3. We collect unserviceable flags in the area and see that they are properly and respectfully retired.
  4. We provide veterans to speak on flag etiquette and Americanism topics at schools, churches and youth programs, especially around Memorial Day and Veterans Day.
  5. We conduct regular visits to VA Hospitals and veteran's homes providing various sundry items and comradeship to fellow veterans throughout the year.
  6. Our members are active throughout the community donating their leadership and time to many civic endeavors. Our membership donates hours to such organizations as: The Red Cross, Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, Cancer Society and many others.
  7. We support the annual Memorial Day and Veterans Day programs by serving a community luncheon on each of these holidays.
  8. We conduct or participate in many other patriotic parades and events throughout the year such as Flag Day, Independence Day, POW/MIA Recognition Day, Veterans Day and more.
