Yeah, we finally have electronic pull tabs and bingo at the Post. So far we have had a good response from those that have come down to play, come down and give it a try, I'm sure you'll like it.
Don't forget about the bands we have playing on June 17th and 18th, both indoors and out in the parking lot. I heard there were bands coming all the way up here from the cities to play for free. And it's free for all our members and guests. Check out (print)
the flyer and tell your friends. See you there!

The turnout at Loyalty Days in Pengilly this past weekend wasn't too bad. We could always use a better turn out. On a good note, I was elected as your new 8th District Commander for the 2016-2017 year. I don't officially take over until after the June Convention. I am looking forward to an eventful year, however, I hope it doesn't get too busy where I won't have time to update this website. It may give me more things to keep you informed about though. We'll just have to see.
With the business at the Post slowing down during the summer, there may be some changes to the decor of the Post being made. If there is anything you would like to see changed, please let the officers know so we can incorporate those changes. There has already been one change done and that was to move the sewing groups things from the display room to the storage room under the BINGO display. New cabinets were purchased and new shelving installed. The room will still be used to store the extra tables and chairs, but it will be easier for the sewing group to access their things and will be more organized. They do a lot for our Veterans and if this will make it easier for them, then that's great. This will also open the display room for better things.
Don't forget to come to the next Post meeting (Thursday May 12th) for the Joint Memorial Service and to install and congratulate the new Officers and show them your support. See you there.!

Spring is in the air (or is it)? With the changing of the weather comes changes at the Post. In the spring we elect new officers to lead us into the new VFW year, the events at the Post start to dwindle down and the hours of operation are changing as well. Some new officers have been elected and appointed at the last members meeting (Post and Auxiliary) so come down to the meeting on May 12th to welcome in the new officers and show them your support. I know they will appreciate it. It looks like Burger Night on the first and third Thursdays will be ending this Thursday and the Steak/Walleye Dinners have ended as well. Now we have to wait until Fall to enjoy those tasty meals. And the hours of operation for the club have changed to opening every day at 2:00 (no more 11:00 on Sunday) and closing time is now midnight every day except Friday and Saturday when stay open until 1:00 a.m.
Dont' forget about Loyalty Days coming up at the end of the month. This year it will be held in Pengilly. Hope to see you there.

It's that time of year again when we are privileged to elect new leadership for our VFW Post and District. We've already had a round of nominations for the Post Officers. Make sure to come down to the next meeting on the 14th to vote for the officers you want elected. Then at the end of the month is Loyalty Days in Pengilly. Hope to see you there to cast your vote on the leadership you want at the District level. Thanks to those who are currently serving our great country and those who have served previously, we have that right to vote for and elect the leaders we want to represent us, whether it be locally or nationally. As long as we live in the land of the free and the home of the brave, we will have that right. See you there.
