GRAFTON—The Grafton Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3081 Auxiliary will be hosting a special event that is aimed at helping military families in their time of need.
Join the ladies of the auxiliary as they serve up a hot dog lunch, complete with all the fixings on Friday, July 8, from 11:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m.
Make your way to the post home, located at 225 West Main Street, Grafton, to pick up food for you and your loved ones. The auxiliary will be offering two hotdogs, served with chips and a drink for just $5.
For those who wish to skip the drink, the cost of the meal will be just $4.
The food will be available for both dine in and carry out options.
Be sure to leave plenty of room for dessert, because the auxiliary will be offering some sweet treats and delicious desserts through a bake sale.
The money raised will be used to benefit programs for veterans, including two major programs that are the focus of the local post.
Since its inception in 1914, the VFW Auxiliary has worked tirelessly to offer financial and moral support to those who need it most, so head down to the VFW 3081 Post Home on Friday, July 8, to grab a tasty meal and help them further their work.
“Buying these meals will help veterans and their families, so you surely don’t want to miss out,” expressed an auxiliary member.
For over a hundred years, the VFW Auxiliary has been supporting the Veterans of Foreign Wars, serving veterans, active-duty service members and their families. Their programs are set up to bring needed services, information and assistance to these target groups.
There are more than 470,000 members in all most 3,800 Auxiliaries across the United States. Those Auxiliaries serve our nations veterans in many different ways such as hospital volunteering, adoption of military units and promoting patriotism.
For some in the community, there is a stigma around the local VFW that is it just a bar, but in fact, the Memorial City Post offers so much more.
“The VFW doesn’t get the credit it deserves,” said the auxiliary member. “We want people to know why we’re here and that we aren’t just a bar. We are here for our veterans.”
Anyone wishing to join the auxiliary is invited to attend one of their meetings, held the second and fourth Tuesday of each month, at the Memorial City Post Home.
“We are always open for membership, and we’d love to have you,” said the member on behalf of the auxiliary. “In order to become a member, all an applicant must have is a family member who has served in foreign wars or they must have themselves served.”
