April news from ANZA VFW Post 1873 and Auxiliary

Hope everyone had a Happy Easter and didn’t overdo it on the hard-boiled eggs, chocolate rabbits and peeps. As long as we remember what the day signifies, we’ll be OK. Now that spring is officially here, we can prepare for our gardens. Don’t think we’ll put one in this year. I don’t know if it’s cheaper to grow veggies or buy them. But if you find yourself with an overabundance, I’m sure you will be able to find someone to take some off your hands (myself, included).

Heads Up! Dinner hours are back to being served Wednesday and Friday 5-7 p.m. and breakfasts on Sundays 8:30-10 a.m. We’re always ready to bring new members into the Post and Auxiliary. We can always use volunteers, members or not, to help with the cooking, helping to serve or cleanup, upkeep, etc.  If you’re interested in joining and/or helping out, call the Post at 763-4439. Remember, we’re here for the Veterans.

We are in desperate need of cooks. If you’re interested, please give Debbi a call at (951) 763-1291. We will be more than glad to guide you through the steps to prepare a meal for a crowd.

Keep saving those aluminum pull tabs for Ronald McDonald House, cancelled stamps for a Wounded Warrior project, and Campbell Labels for Education.

Keep learning. Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever. Never let the brain idle.
