Our MISSION at Army & Navy Club is to promote social activities for all of our Veterans and family.
Army Navy Club received a $4,000 donation for the Building Fund from UNICO National, the largest Italian American Service Organization in the United States. The check (you can see it on the bulletin board) was presented at the UNICO Golf Tournament at the Manchester Country Club to Rich Dabate. This will help us toward our plans for club improvements.
We always strive to provide you with the highest quality service.

This Is Not Your Typical Veterans Organization
The Army and Navy Club of Manchester, Connecticut is experiencing the same difficulty as most veterans organizations throughout the country. Membership is decreasing. The Club lost its last WW I veteran several years back, the WW II veterans are dying off as are many Korean War vets, Vietnam era veterans were not big on joining veterans organizations upon return from active duty, and there are just not that many people serving in the armed forces as there once was.
At one point the Army and Navy Club had well over 2000 members. Today its membership is just 400 strong. In actuality this is a much larger membership than most clubs in the area. This can be attributed to the fact that this is not your typical veterans organization. The Army and Navy Club is strictly a local organization. It has no national affiliation. It has no political agenda and was founded primarily to promote comradeship between veterans of the United States Armed Forces.
The club, which is located at 1090 Main Street in Manchester, was founded in 1919 for returning World War I veterans. The Cheney Brothers Textile Mills donated the property on which the club stands. Local businesses and citizens donated building materials and labor. The club has opened its membership to veterans of all our wars. The original members have gone the way of all good soldiers but the organization remains active in many patriotic and civic causes.
There is a range of activities sponsored by the Club. There are card tournaments, D.J. dances and bus trips offered periodically. There is a weekly set back league, a dart league, a shuffleboard league and golf league. Bingo is held every Saturday night throughout the year at 6:30 p.m. The Club bar is open on a regularly scheduled basis five days a week (closed Thursdays & Sundays). Drink prices are extremely reasonable.
Military personnel and veterans interested in membership may contact us at (860) 646-9133, or submit a membership application from this website.
