The Tony K. Burris VFW Post 3608’s Christmas Party was a great success thanks to Post and Auxiliary members who spent time setting up the room, bringing the side dishes and deserts, and bringing Christmas spirit. Our Post was honored to have Oklahoma State VFW Commander Coral Porch join us for this festive evening. Below are some pictures of the event.
Although the primary mission of the VFW is to help veterans and their families, our Post is proud to also help those in our local community. Because of the generosity of our Post and Auxiliary Members, we were able to donate well over $100 worth of food to the Blanchard Senior Citizen’s Center. Post Quartermaster Fischer delivered the food and accepting it on behalf of the Senior Center were Cheryl Schmidt, Mary Moore, Darlene Foulks and Jeannene Wheeler.
In addition, many of our members brought new, unwrapped toys for distribution to children in need in our area. Accepting the donation of these toys from QM Fischer was Monica Brandenberg of the Children’s Welfare Division of the McClain County Department of Health Services.
Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of our members, friends and families and we wish everyone the best for the New Year of 2019!!!
