“Dinner is served” after reopening of Aberdeen VFW Post #224
“Dinner is served,” says Aberdeen Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #224 Commander Jim Daly. “Or at least it will be served again beginning on July 10th.”
Beginning on Thursday, July 10th, the Aberdeen VFW kitchen will be back in operation serving dinners Thursday and Friday evenings from 4:00pm to 7:30pm. And they will also be serving Breakfast on Saturdays and Sundays from 8:30am – 1:00pm will begin Saturday, July 12th. Both Dinner and Breakfast are open to the public.
Commander Daly says: “We never quit serving veterans, but we have not had a Post home for two full years. Now everything is clean, painted, well lit, and bright. It doesn’t look the same at all. We have re-opened the kitchen, and have full menus for both Breakfast and Dinner. We will also be renting our main hall with a capacity of 220, and are able to provide catered lunches or dinners for civic groups, businesses, and other groups that would like to meet in a large facility over food. We have also moved Bingo back to our hall.”
Nell Todd, Auxiliary President, says: “Bingo is now back in our hall on both Monday and Wednesday. Doors open at 5:00pm and games beginning at 6:30pm. Aberdeen VFW has invested a great deal of money in the repairs recently completed on the building and we are back in full swing.”
“Our lounge will be operational soon, as well” said Terry Holderman, Post Quartermaster. “We are only waiting on a Temporary Pre-approval License from the Washington State Liquor Control Board.”
When the lounge reopens, all members of any Veteran’s organization (American Legion, Am Vets, 40 et 8, DAV, NCOA, etc.) and members of both Active Duty and Reserve military components will be welcome.
If you would like to support the Aberdeen VFW for their building repairs, donations may also be made to the special donation account at Anchor Bank or dropped off or mailed to VFW Post 224, 105 East Heron, Aberdeen, WA 98520.
