“Dinner is served,” says Aberdeen Veterans of Foreign Wars Post No. 224 Commander Jim Daly.
As of July 10, the Aberdeen VFW kitchen has been back in operation serving dinners Thursday and Friday evenings from 4 to 7:30 p.m. They also serve breakfast from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturdays and Sundays. Both dinner and breakfast are open to the public.
The post building in downtown Aberdeen was closed for a couple of years after the roof was damaged during a storm.
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 p.m. and games beginning at 6:30. 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. 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.
