Our thanks to Doug and Sheila Yarnell, John Schilling and Jeff Humphrey for volunteering to serve a hamburger dinner to the Alma High School Varsity Football Team and coaches. The young men of the Alma Panthers Varsity Football Team have supported VFW Post 1454 with donations exceeding $5,000 in the last 2 years! Dinner was a small token of our appreciation for their generous donations and continued support.
Please join us in salute to the Alma High School Varsity Football Team. We thank you for your continued support of local Veterans and Post 1454. We will be cheering you on as you make your way toward the State Finals! Go Panthers!
