Our Auxiliary also shipped 8 boxes of goodies to our Troops overseas. Char received a text from Benjamin that all of the boxes had arrived in time for Christmas.
Deck the Halls, VFW Post 1454's hall that is. Club Manager Ellen has been busy decorating the hall for our New Year's Eve celebration. It's been a busy month for hall rentals too. Private parties, wedding receptions, family gatherings & more. Keep us in mind for your next event!
Shout out to Juan & Steve the Volunteer Floor Cleaning Crew! Thank you for your hard work. The floors look great! Perfect for dancing in the New Year. FYI - Our New Year's Eve Party is SOLD OUT!
New chairs for the New Year! New chairs for the Post have arrived. Huge thanks to James & our Post Auxiliary for handling the order, purchasing the chairs & finding a home for our old chairs, and to Char & Jeanne for helping unwrap all the new chairs.
Yes, December has been a busy month but we always have plenty of fun too. We celebrated the holidays and December birthdays for two special members of our VFW Family. Happy Birthday Commander Vic and Club Manager Ellen!

Waterfowlers for Warriors 22 Mile Veteran's Suicide Awareness Walk on June 8th was a huge success with many walkers turning out to participate. The walk began at Edmore VFW Post 2292 at 5:30 a.m. and ended at our Post with a meal for the walkers. We were honored to once again welcome the Spartan Sword and pleased to assist Waterfowlers for Warriors in their effort to raise awareness for this worthy cause. We hope you will consider joining in next year!
