Marian was our Auxiliary Chaplain and participated in many of our public events for many years.
2. VFW Monthly Meeting: Our next monthly meeting will be on Monday, January 9th with dinner being served at 6 pm followed by our meeting. The joint meeting usually starts around 6:30 to 6:45 pm, depending on how long those attending take to eat.
Please know that starting this month, we will have a $50 drawing. When you check in at the door, someone will give you a free ticket. The lucky winning ticket will be drawn during the joint meeting. We will be doing this each month with a special extra drawing quarterly. If you do not win the drawing on Monday, your ticket will still be entered into the quarterly drawing.
