Greetings Comrades,

     Spring is upon us at last! I hope you are all in good health and ready to get outside and enjoy the warmer weather. I loved seeing all of you on St Patrick’s Day at the Post enjoying the Corned Beef and Cabbage dinner and sandwiches. Thank you to everyone who participated. Thanks to the bartenders who served the Beer to wash down the Corned Beef and Cabbage.

     Post 295 is very fortunate to have a number of great volunteers. We are now through the Fish Fry season. We could not offer Fish Fries, or any of our regular meals, without the volunteers who cook, serve and clean up afterwards. It takes many hours of work before an event even starts to make these happen. We truly appreciate our hard-working volunteers. We are looking for some additions, so if you can help us out, we would like to take some of the pressure off our regular helpers.

     Now that the fish fries are over it is time for the Steak and Shrimp Dinners to start. The first one will be April 15th, Every 3rd Friday through December, going from 5-8pm.

     If anyone knows someone who has recently separated from military service, or is contemplating separation, or is VFW inclined and interested in the benefits, assistance, and camaraderie our Post provides, please have them contact me. We are here to help!!

     Please come down to Volunteer at the Post. We are in need of Volunteers if you want to come see a Post officer.

     We need to be PROUD of our Service and PROUD of the Veterans of Foreign Wars!


Your Brother in Arms,


Terry Tucker Jr, Commander
