Quartermaster’s Desk- March / April 2014

Come on spring!

The last couple of months have really created some serious cabin fever symptoms. I want to thank everyone who could make it to our Wednesday Dinners and Drawing Nights. We made it through the worst of the weather, and three days of closing, in good shape. In addition to better weather, we will be […]

Quartermaster’s Desk- January / February 2014

A new year is upon us—before addressing our wishes and hopes for 2014, let me review some of our activities from 2013. Despite rumors that we were “going broke,” we weren’t. Financially the Post is in good shape. Thanks to both big and small efforts by Post members and our Auxiliaries. The Men’s Auxiliary had phenominal […]

Another season passes, but as we move into fall, the activities at Francis Vinyard Post 2749 VFW continue.

We are going to use all 3 “Open to Public” days each month for the foreseeable future. It’s intended to bring in folks to experience our Canteen and the atmosphere we enjoy at our Post. It’s also a […]

Quartermaster’s Desk- September / October 2013

Our great weather has continued with fairly mild temperatures and enough rain for a good growing season. Speaking of growing, we are into a new year for annual dues. As an incentive to pay early, VFW National is running a drawing for 15 Life Memberships. All you have to do is pay your annual dues […]

Quartermaster’s Desk- July / August 2013

I hope everyone is enjoying the great weather we are experiencing. The season is moving into summer, hooray! Likewise the 2013-2014 Post Officers are officially installed effective June 15th. Please support these worthy individuals as you did last year’s officers. No matter what the Post, Women’s Auxiliary and Men’s Auxiliary attempt to benefit our veterans, nothing […]

Quartermaster’s Desk- May / June 2013

Well, the first quarter of 2013 has come and gone, and I’m happy to see warmer weather once again. As usual, things have been busy here at Francis Vinyard Post 2749 VFW. Financially we are in sound condition with the return of our “snowbirds”, improved weather and upcoming events, our income should improve.

Come on Spring!

At our last District 4 Meeting at Post 8147, Fort Wayne, our State Commander Rodney Funk, expressed his pride […]

Quartermaster’s Desk- November / December 2012


We’ve seen three quarters pass this year and the fall chill is in the air.

So far, this year has seen lots of changes at the Post. Our House Committee keeps the canteen area pleasant and comfortable with the help of Kelly and the service staff. The few problems that crop up are handled quickly without […]

Fall is just a few short weeks away, probably one of the best times of the year in Northeast Indiana.
