Beach Bash!

The Veterans of Foreign Wars  (VFW) will hold its 21st annual Beach Bash at Driftwood Beach in Barretto February  6-10.

The 3-days of fun and frolic raises funds to support the many charities of the local veterans’organization, headed by Post Commander Dennis Doty.

This year's events will include a Battle of the Bands, talent & variety contests, Miss Beach Bash & Little Miss Beach Bash, as well as well known local bands. A parade featuring bands, marching units, floats students and dignitaries will be held Saturday morning. 

As always, after a few beers in the blazing sun, and a few sausages, there will be a blood pressure booth and a nurse on hand.

The VFW supports student scholarships, medical and  dental outreach programs, aids many families and widows of vets who  chose to live here, as well as other programs to aid their friends and neighbors.
