Hello and Welcome to VFW Post 280's Website
Have we got some exciting events and activities lined up for the next few months.
Every Non-Profit Organization functions for the pleasure of its members to serve the community in which it exists. The Veterans of Foreign Wars was established by veterans to help veterans.
Post 280 has a concept and philosophy not unlike other VFW Posts, but unlike many other organizations. Just as President John F. Kennedy once asked, "Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country". Our post is made up of around 800 members many of which are World War II Veterans and unable to make a presence within the community. However, the members that are healthy enough and with the time available will be making our presense known over the course of the next 15 months and we would love to be of service to you.
We are looking for 1000 citizens to pledge $8.00 per month for a term of 1 year. These funds will be used to maintain our facility and to increase our Community Outreach Programs.
Additional events on the horizon which may be of interest to you.
January24th will be a Chilli Cook Off.
February1st Super Bowl Sunday. Come on down, watch the game and enjoy a good old fashioned Fish Fry.
As you can see the events are various, the causes are important, and your involvment will be greatly appreciated. Keep checking with the Post website and facebook page so that you can be informed and find an event you like best.
