VFW Post 6280 had its summer social on July 15th for families and supporters to meet and for recognition. Adjutant Kasey Hayes served as the cook with the post commander being his assistant. Post leadership recognized sponsors and supporters for the recent Kayaking for Epilepsy event held in June on the Current River. The commander and senior vice commander Bob Westerfield also awarded a 9mm Honor Guard pistol to Jason Hagenhoff from Westphalia, who was a participant in the Kayaking for Epilepsy event and also an American Volunteer service group member. The DPMS AR 15 was awarded to Joe Gant, a local supporter. Proceeds from the gun raffle are used to support community projects and veterans.
