The Riverhead Veterans of Foreign Wars post broke out the green beer and corned beef as their St. Patrick’s Day celebration lunch was revived for the first time in years Sunday afternoon.

Volunteers with the group and its Ladies’ Auxiliary made corned beef sandwiches, homemade coleslaw and potato salad, and pickles for dozens of visitors ready to celebrate the luck of the Irish. The post also held a 50/50 raffle as part of the fundraising festivities

The VFW post hostef St. Patrick’s Day and other cooking celebrations in the past, but hadn’t done the gatherings after in recent years after the passing of several older members

“We used to do lots and lots and lots,” said Dottie Minnick, vice president of the Ladies Auxiliary, “We’re just trying to revamp, bring people out, bring people back.”

All proceeds from the St. Patrick’s Day event will go toward the club’s veterans relief fund, which helps local veterans in need with medical and other expenses. As of 4 p.m., about 60 people had turned out for the lunch.

The post’s next event will be a roast beef dinner night on April 12 from 6 to 8 p.m.

  • Sure, those people “extremists” trying to carry food stuff and medical supplies to Gaza ended up armed with objects they uncovered lying across the boat. Do not make it look like they were carrying actual weapons, for the reason that slingshots are not exactly armor piercing, not considerably of the match for full tactical gear with the IDF. A lot of of them ended up also very young, including the Turkish-American 19 calendar year old who was shot inside the again and killed. But nobody the following cares about that either.

  • I recall when these had been introduced I used to be crazy around them (I was 14). The family was while in the market place for your new car and while we have been a GM household I convinced my people they had to drive amongst these. We did, and it did not go about nicely. The styling was too swoopy for them, they located the interior room minimal for that size with the car, and the woodgrain around the dash looked so cheap and chintzy they had been turned off.

  • In the Concord/Walnut Creek/Pleasant Hill area of California the most beneficial I have identified is New York Pizza on Contra Costa Blvd.

  • I wish to show my appreciation to the writer just for rescuing me from such a circumstance. As a result of surfing around through the internet and finding views that were not powerful, I assumed my entire life was gone. Being alive without the presence of approaches to the issues you’ve resolved as a result of your main review is a crucial case, and the ones which might have negatively affected my entire career if I had not encountered your blog. Your own personal know-how and kindness in handling all the details was very helpful. I am not sure what I would have done if I hadn’t come upon such a solution like this. I’m able to at this point relish my future. Thanks for your time so much for the high quality and result oriented guide. I won’t think twice to refer the blog to anybody who will need guidance on this matter.
