Welcome to Greater Pine Island VFW Post 4353
New Landscaping Gift…
I would like to thank Ila & Frank Valcarcel and Pine Island Cove Systems for the beautiful landscaping they donated in the front and side of our Post. Ron King has taken on yet another job of watering the new trees for the next three months. Go by the VFW early in the morning and you might catch Ron outside doing his rain dance, so he doesn’t have to get the hose out.
A Veteran Pays it Forward
Mr. Donald Grelick of Bokeelia, a Korean War Veteran, wanted to help other Veterans by helping out our organization. He did so with a very generous donation to Post 4353. Thank you so much.
Work Continues on Restrooms
Help is desperately needed to assist with remodeling the restrooms in the rear of our Post. You would not have to be here every day but if you could even give one hour—it would be so appreciated. One person, alone, is trying to accomplish this and the job needs you. If you can even be a gofer, I will appreciate it. Please consider lending a hand for YOUR Post.
Wine & Canvas Sept. 2
Wine & Canvas is a mobile business that brings the party to us. Painting is made easy and exciting. Their talented artists will instruct you step- by- step through re-creating the featured painting of the day. At the end of the event, you’ll take home a work of the art you created. Wine & Canvas is cheaper than art school! There are no lengthy or expensive commitments as with art classes. “Life is too short for blank walls; unleash your inner Picasso.
September 2nd at 6 PM. Wine & Canvas provides music along with ALL supplies needed to paint a 16×20 wrapped canvas. The event lasts 2-1/2 to 3 hours at a cost of $35.00 per person. This is a very fun and creative event and WE have it right here on Pine Island!
I would like to thank Jerry & Lee Congdon for the use of their trailer, Linda Keefer, Michelle Keefer Johnson, and Diane Trazzera for decorating our July 4th Float for the Pine Island Parade. Thanks also to Tom Cote, Diane Trazzera and Ashley Depalma for their participation riding on the float. Thank you Ladies Auxiliary for funding this civic project.
Although our float did not win 1st place, I was proud, as a Post, we participated.
Keith Keefer, Commander
