Thanks to everyone who purchased dinners at our first annual grilled chicken dinner. It was a huge success! We pretty much reached our sales goal and we are planning for a 2nd annual dinner next year. Stay tuned. Thanks again for your support.
The Chippewa Falls Patriotic Council and VFW Post 1038 were unable to conduct Veterans Days Programs at local schools this year due to the COVID restrictions. However, one school honored all veterans by producing a short video.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our annual Buddy Poppy campaign to raise funds for our Relief Fund was rescheduled to September 10th, 11th and 12th, 2020. Amazingly, donations were nearly as good as last year and we'll be able to support needy veterans in our service area and several other VFW programs.
You were not alone over there. You are not alone now. There are 20 million veterans who would give their lives for you. Please don't take yours.
Don't forget to bring a dish to pass!
