Our Goal

Support black-owned businesses. We need to put our community first at all times, just like every other community puts their communities first. It is time for the black community to change the narrative. We need to keep our money in our community and support ourselves.

The Location

The Military Retiree’s Club of Richmond, Virginia, a war veterans organization, was the dream and vision of founders the late Leon Ellis and the late Joseph Steward, both U. S. Army retirees who recognized the need to maintain a sense of comradeship among military retirees and the opportunity to strengthen bonds and relations with the community at large. Their dream and vision were shared by 27 other charter members who came together to organize the Military Retirees Club on June 1, 1972.

We have vendors coming from 19 different states.
