Welcome to CMAC

We are an all inclusive community driven non-military organization where everyone is welcome.

The Community Military Appreciation Committee (CMAC) will present the fourth annual Vancouver/SW WA “Heroes Night” celebration. Come join us Saturday, June 24, 2017 at the East Vancouver Costco located at 19610 SE 1st St. (on the corner of SE 1st St. and 192nd Ave.).

There will be a car show starting at 4:00 PM, with the event inside Costco happening from 5:00 to 8:00 PM. CMAC has organized this event, with help from its generous sponsor Columbia Credit Union, to honor our military veterans, police, firefighters and others on the “front lines” in protecting our community and country – genuine heroes all.

This year will see the 1st Annual “Bill Morehouse Community Award” given to selected first responders who go above and beyond in their work and in their community.
