VFW suppers

JAY — VFW post #3335 and auxiliary in Jay will be resuming their Friday night suppers beginning the first Friday in November. The price is $7 and the theme for the month will be homemade soup and sandwich with dessert. All meals are take-out only so please call ahead to reserve yours. Call Janice at 207-897-2122.  Pick up time is 5 p.m. During the second half of the month they will be making wreaths and holiday centerpieces displayed outside to sell when you pick up your take outs. We will be making a calendar of upcoming events to keep everyone up to date of our future plans.

Local veteran’s organizations have taken a hit during the pandemic.  Many have to make the decision on whether to close. Here in Jay the post and auxiliary are trying to do what they can to keep the bills paid until we can reopen. The VFW’s and auxiliaries nation wide have raised millions of dollars through our programs such as: Veterans and family support, hospital, legislature, scholarships, youth activities community service and Americanism.
