Not only is Lacey St. Jean the first female commander of the Dartmouth VFW, but she has some pretty big shoes to fill since she's taking over her father's role. St. Jean has been a member of the Dartmouth VFW for 14 years and has big plans for the organization, including adding social media to reach out to the community. You can see for yourself at the Commander Steak Cookout on Sunday, July 15 at 1 pm. St. Jean joins Kasey Silvia on Townsquare Sunday to talk about what this role means to her, as well as her goals for the Dartmouth VFW in the future.

Townsquare Sunday with Jim Phillips can be heard each Sunday at 6 a.m. on WBSM 1420 and Townsquare Sunday is a weekly public affairs program highlighting non-profits and community organizations in the Greater New Bedford area.
