Chicken BBQ – September 12

We plan to have extra dinners available, BUT to be sure you get the dinners you want, preordering early (by Tuesday, Sept 8) is recommended. Please place orders using the Quick Link on the right side of our website or on our phone app (search VFW 5265 in app store and download).
Dinners are $8 for half chicken, baked potato, roll & butter. Pay at pick up – exact cash appreciated. Drive-up service 10:30 am until sold out.  Preorders that are not picked up by 12:30 may be sold to another customer.

We are open. All service will be at tables either inside or on the patio, no bar seating. Take out food is available – do not need to be a member to order food. If enjoying an alcoholic beverage, it must be purchased with a meal per Gov. Wolf.
Current membership card of Post 5265 must be presented to your server when purchasing alcohol. VFW Veterans & Auxiliary from other Posts may show their National Member card to purchase alcohol. Social members from other VFW’s may not purchase alcohol.
Our hours have changed: open at 11 am daily, closing time has changed – hours are posted at the top of the specials menu located in the Quick Links.
We are thankful that our Post is able to be open. Your patience and understanding is most appreciated as we are doing our best during this challenging time. Thank you for supporting the VFW.

Taps Across America

Since we can not hold our traditional Memorial Day program, we will be playing “Taps” on Monday, May 25, at 3 pm in front of the VFW.

Join us in this national effort to remember our fallen heroes. Please arrive early, so that you are in place and ready for “Taps” to be played at 3 pm. We ask that you are considerate and respect others and practice social distancing on the lawn or stay in/beside your vehicle. During “Taps”, please stand, face the music and place your hand over your heart.
