The VA Medical Center Togus is 150 years old this fall.  They are having a party this Saturday September 17th.   Togus is a cool place with a lot of history.  They take care of our veterans and do so in a beautiful place.  The Togus campus is lovely.

According to, Saturday starts at 9 with trolley tours and fun stuff for the kids. There is also a historical encampment that will be going on. There is a parade that starts around 10. Then there will be music and a cookout as well as a dedication of a memory garden and veterans tree.

The National Cemetery is breathtaking.  If you visit the west cemetery they have a number of signs talking about the how and why of those.  Well worth the visit to learn about some local history.
