VFW Posts accept challenge
Led by VFW Post No. 8555 of Poth, 19 posts combined their efforts in supporting a project to purchase folding tables and chairs for the Frank M. Tejeda Texas State Veterans Home in Floresville. The tables and chairs are needed for events at the center such as luncheons, meetings, family gatherings, and other occasions where large numbers of guests are welcomed.
Fund-raising was conducted to raise the majority of the costs. In addition to Post No. 8555’s work, donations were encouraged throughout these posts: San Antonio’s Post Nos. 76, 837, 4700, 4815, 6012, 8111, 8397, 8541, 8936, 9174, 9186, and 9603. Kirby’s Post No. 2059, Universal City’s Post No. 4676, Jourdanton’s Post No. 4853, Poteet’s Post No. 6970, Helotes’ Post No. 7108, and Lytle’s Post No. 12041 also participated. Through cooperation of these VFW Posts, much progress has been made, but the veterans facility is still in need of 32 more chairs.
If you would like to assist in this beneficial project by contributing toward the expense, call Bernie Ott at 830-393-6470 or Leo Schneider at 830-484-3607 or 210-846-2843.
