VFW Post #1873 and its auxiliaries

How are you coming on those resolutions? Do you have any left this early in the month that haven’t been broken yet? I know some folks who resolve never to make a resolution. But then, isn’t that a resolution in itself?

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.

The Ladies’ Auxiliary is putting on a Valentine’s Day Gourmet Dinner on Feb. 14. You’ll get five courses with wine and champagne at a cost of $25 per person. Reservations are required. Call Reba at 763-2254 for your reservation. Seating is limited.

All members of the community are invited to our meals and activities. Days of operation are: Wednesday and Friday, 5 to 7 p.m., and Sunday 8:30 a.m. till noon.

And don’t forget to save your pull tabs for Ronald McDonald House and cancelled stamps for “Stamps for the Wounded.” But they don’t need flag, liberty bell or presorted stamps.
