They are BACK…

DRAG QUEEN Bingo Returns July 19th at 6 pm                                      Wings served 4:30—6 pm


Wheelchair Accessible Restroom

The Women’s/handicap restroom in the back of the Post now has the plumbing redone, new drywall on the walls, painted and ready for new ceiling tile and floor tile.  This could not have happened without the funding from the Men’s Auxiliary.  I think it will be a welcomed update.


New Lunch Hours…

Beginning July 1st our lunches will be  11:00 am to 1:00 pm.  We hope these new hours will capture the early lunch people as well as our regular ones.  Our lunches are good and fresh:  Mon:  Brats, Tues:  Grilled Chicken Sandwich, Wed:  Bar Burgers, Thurs:  Mexican Lunch, Fri:  Keith’s Fried Bologna Sandwiches.  Stop in and enjoy an inexpensive and delicious lunch at your Post.


 4th of July Parade & Lunch

The Pine Island 4th of July parade begins at 11 am and our Post will be represented with a float.  Linda Keefer has coordinated this project and it promises to be an authentic representation of our VFW Post Members.  After the parade, we will have a Picnic Lunch 11:30.  Pulled Pork, Potato Salad, Baked Beans and dessert.  The price for the Picnic is $6.00.  Hope you can take time out and join us.

If you can spare an hour or so, our trees and shrubs could use a haircut.  Just check with Commander Keith Keefer for additional details.
