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.
