Mid-month news from Anza VFW Post 1873 and Auxiliary, help needed


It’s time to put out a serious call for help. We have very few cooks to cover Sundays and Fridays. We had to drop the Wednesday meals for this reason. We’re grateful to the Lions for serving up their great omelets, but there are three to four more Sundays that need to be covered, as well as Fridays. Whether you have members of your family who served in the military, or friends who have, you can help the Post stay afloat by either cooking a meal or helping serve, etc.

Except for one cook, the rest of us are in our 70s. We promise we won’t drop you in the middle of the kitchen and say, “Good luck! You’re on your own.”

Those of us who put in our time and effort sure could use help. We’re getting worn-out. We can’t last forever. If you’re interested in helping in any way, please give our kitchen manager, Debbi, a call at 763-1291.
