Anza VFW Post 1873 and Auxiliary mid-month news

We certainly have had our share of rain these past two months, as well as some fair-weather days. I was asked if it was OK to start planting. Only if you’re planting a cold weather seed. We could still have snow. I was here years ago when it snowed for Easter. Mother Nature loves to trip us up.

Heads up! We’ll be holding our first auction of the year Feb. 23 at 6 p.m. Have your items to the Post by 5 p.m.

Dinners are served from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Our Wednesday potlucks continue to be very successful. If you would like to bring something to share, have it there by 5 p.m. We’ve had some great donation menus. Thanks to all those who participate.

We sure could use new cooks and helpers. If you’re interested, please give our kitchen manager, Debbi, a call at 763-1291.

If a necklace chain is knotted, put a drop or two of salad oil on a piece of waxed paper, lay the knot in the oil and undo it by using 2 straight pins. It should unknot easily.
