April news from Anza VFW Post 1873 and its auxiliary

It’s a thrill to drive the roads and see fields covered with flowers and the trees blooming. The fruit trees are loaded with blossoms, promising a bumper crop of fruit (if the critters don’t get them first). I don’t mind sharing, but it sure would be nice if they would leave some for those who care for them. But I guess we have to accept what will be. I haven’t had any fruit to can for several years. Of course, if we have more heavy winds and a freeze, it won’t make any difference.

Both the Comrades and Auxiliary will be electing new officers this month. If you are interested in accepting a position, please contact Commander Henry Sokol or Auxiliary President Tonie Ford, or leave a message at the Post. Remember, we are here to support our Veterans.

We sure could use new cooks and helpers. If you’re interested, please give our kitchen manager, Debbi, a call at (951) 763-1291.
