CALENDAR OF EVENTS
VFW Post 261 & Auxiliary Sew and Distribute masks
Members have been hard at work sewing and distributing masks throughout our community.
Larry Lyman and Ada Coffey held a mask give-away at the post in April. Masks were provided to anyone in need free of charge.
Auxiliary Member and Treasurer, Willie Campbell, has put her sewing talents to work in a big way!
Willie has single-handedly made over 700 CDC face masks, and with the help of the Post House Committee and her Veteran nephew, have distributed over 600 masks to first responders, a surgery center, a physical therapy clinic, veterans and families, 3 nursing homes, three business, and the US Postal service. She has done so much for our veterans and continues to serve. A job well done Willie!!!
VFW Post 261 House Committee Busy at Work
During the closure of the Post, the House Committee and Friends have been sprucing up the Post
The House Committee, along with the help of numerous friends of the Post have been using this time to update the Canteen. The Canteen is looking great after the completion of a thorough deep cleaning and fresh paint.
The health of our Members is of the upmost importance and when the Post reopens, you can be assured that the facility is safe for your enjoyment.
We are looking forward to reopening and will advise the date as soon as we have the all-clear.
The VFW will not rest until we achieve the fullest possible accounting of all missing American military service members from all wars. Visit the Department of POW/MIA Accounting Agency for updated information on our missing men and women.
