VFW REOPENS DECEMBER 28th, 2015 @ 4pm!!!
Come check out the new bar!
November 1st, 2015 –
Thank you all who have been down to support the V’s ongoing fundraising efforts. The Halloween party was so much fun! And a special thank you to Jesse Garon, for volunteering his time & services to us.
Canteen update: right now it seems like not much is going on, but work continues daily. The room has been cleaned…wow, it’s amazing that the horrible smoke smell is gone! Layout of the new bar and new bar equipment are in the final steps of approval. Hill Electric is in the processing of planning out where in the bar we will need outlets and such. It’s pretty amazing how much work there is to do. From electrical, plumbing, air systems, dry walling, painting, and I am sure I am missing much more.
I know it seems like a slow process, but we HOPE by the end of the year to be in our completely BRAND NEW Canteen/Bar!
BE SURE TO CHECK OUT THE EVENTS CALANDER FOR UP TO DATE EVENTS.

Hi all! Well this week in the canteen, we have finally been able to continue with the rest of the demolition. The floor should be done being ripped up. Next week, cleaning the soot and yuck out of there. Next week we will hopefully finalize all the new equipment and get it ordered, as well as the actual bar itself. As it takes about a month for all of this to come in.
This is all exciting stuff, thank you to everyone for their help and input. We are trying to rebuild the bar so the flow is great for the bartenders while accommodating all our awesome friends.
Please be sure to share our events & fundraisers with your friends. I will post that in a separate email.

Updates for the bar! This week has been kind of a slow week, we are at a standstill waiting for the investigation of the fire area to be completed. Hopefully this will be completed on October 12, and the 13th will be removal of that area of equipment. We have picked the paint colors for the hallways and the bathrooms. And can’t wait for that to get started.
Hopefully soon we will have an estimated reopening date,
