Effective August 1, 2014, VFW Post 112
will be a Non Smoking facility. We will
provide a smoking area outside the
Canteen doors. We invite everyone to
continue to support the Post and we
invite all who have not been to the Post
because of the smoking issue to come
down for dinners, brunch or other events
and get involved. We are here to support
Veterans and our community and it takes
all our efforts to accomplish this task.
To all our non-smoking members, we
now have a clean smoke free Canteen
with great Friday dinners and Sunday
brunches, so we expect to see you very
soon for those and other activities.
We are now on Facebook, visit us there at VFW Over There Post 112. Check out

Do you want to support your Post with its veteran and community service programs? You can very easily. We are currently participating in the Dillons Neighborhood Rewards Program. Simply purchase a card through the Post and as you use your card to buy groceries or fuel you help accumulate credits for the Post. Phone or stop into the Post to buy your card and get information. Ph. 265-3255.
We are renewing a fundraising effort that was started a number of years ago. The ceiling tiles of the Canteen are stenciled with the names of members and Ladies that gave to the Post in the past and wanted to have their names enshrined at the Post. For a minimum donation of $10.00 you can have your name among our previous donors. If you wish to participate, send your donation with your name as you want it to appear to:
VFW Post 112

These moneys will help us continue our support of veterans in the community, at our local VA Hospital or wherever a veteran is in need.
We Thank You for your support.
