VFW Post #1873 and its Auxiliaries

Is it finally winter, yet? Not that I’m looking forward to really cold weather. My summer clothes are in limbo – leave on hangers or pack away. We go through this every year, so it’s really no surprise. This is better than 2 feet of snow. That’s the extreme winter I used to go through when I was a kid back in Ohio. I’m past the snowball throwing phase of my life. And shoveling snow is definitely not on my list of favorite things to do. But curled up with a good book in front of the wood-burning stove definitely is.

We have two flags left to sell at the Post for $20. Leave a message with Susan, our bartender, if you want to reserve one. We’re having a New Year’s Eve party on Dec. 31. Watch my next article for more information.
