Veterans' Group

Facilitated by the Library Director, Lee Ann Amend and members of Sharon's military family. For more information contact: lamend@sharon.ocln.org or (781) 784-1578 ext. 1425.

  • Meetings will no longer be held once a month on Monday mornings in the library due to low attendance, as our Vietnam Veterans find it harder to come out.  Virtual programming will continue to be offered 6-8 times per year based on military, history and government related topics.  We are looking for post-Vietnam Veterans who served in the Gulf Wars/Campaigns, Afghanistan and Iraq to lead this group.
