Anza VFW Post #1873 and Auxiliary midmonth news

Now that all the fruit trees are blooming, the cold winds are back. At least there hasn’t been a frost. So there’s hope we may get peaches, apricots, plums, etc. But don’t plant your veggies or flowers until after Mother’s Day. There could still be snow! It has been known to happen. Heads Up! Dinner […]

Anza VFW Post #1873 and its Auxiliary March News

I, personally, cannot wait for this election year to come to an end. Why do the candidates have to be so contentious? (I had to look that up to make sure I spelled it right. Is there a dictionary that spells words like they sound? Sure would make it easier to spell them correctly.) Back […]

Mid-month news from VFW Post 1873

Spring may be a month away, but you sure couldn’t tell it by the beautiful weather we’ve been having. Spring flowers are blooming all over my yard, and the trees are starting to bud. A freeze could take care of that in short order. But we have to take what we can get. Mother Nature […]

February news from VFW Post 1873

As I write this, I’m listening to the rain running off the eaves on the west side of my house. I love to hear it, especially when I have a fire going, a good book to read and a pot of homemade soup simmering on the stove. What more could I ask for? Well, I […]

Anza VFW Post 1873 mid-January news

  I’ve had enough cold weather. I used to prefer it to hot weather, but my body has made some changes. I sure am glad my folks decided to move here from Ohio. It may be a nice place to visit relatives, but I sure wouldn’t want to move back there. One of my friends […]

Anza VFW Post #1873 and Auxiliary mid-November news

I do believe that fall is finally here. I can stop watering the lawns. Now the biggest chore will be raking the leaves. I have a huge fruitless mulberry which sheds with gusto. I hope the leaves all fall at once so it can be done and over with. Since it’s getting dark earlier, we […]

ANZA VFW Post #1873 and its Auxiliaries

Now that autumn is officially here, when is someone going to inform Mother Nature that she has her weather days screwed up? And where is the rain that El Nino is supposed to bring us? We just can’t rely on what the calendar says any more. Best bet is to stick your head out the […]

Anza VFW Post #1873 and Auxiliaries’ News

We had a nice turnout to honor Gold Star Mother Donna Schumacher on Sept. 25. Our other Mother had to work so couldn’t make it this time. We can never say thank you enough for the ultimate sacrifice made by these Mothers and their sons. Our auction on Sept. 24 was a great success. I […]

September VFW Post #1873 and its Auxiliaries News

Mark Friday, Sept 25 on your calendar because that day we’ll be honoring Gold Star Mothers at dinner at the post. Ron will be serving shrimp scampi. For those who aren’t sure what a Gold Star Mother is, it’s a mother who lost a son or daughter in combat. I remember when I was a […]
