VFW Post 6441 Oldham-Cummings Honoring Veterans with Food
November 7, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm
For the past number of years, Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 6441 in Wimberley has offered a free meal to military veterans and their families in the local area as near as possible to Veterans Day. The meal consists of brisket, sausage, chicken legs and sides and is conducted in the Post hall. This year’s event is scheduled for 7 November 2020 from 11 am – 2 pm. In the past, we have served as many as 350 people.
This year, we must change our approach as we cannot gather in the hall. The event will be conducted as a drive thru, but the essential premise will remain the same. We must take the time and effort to recognize the sacrifice and valor of those who have defended our great country. Because we will not be able to enjoy the camaraderie and occasional war story in the hall, we are looking at another change in approach – we will be putting together “gimme” bags to be distributed to each vehicle as they pass thru.
The “gimme” bags will consist of information from various Veteran Service Organizations and “special” offers. This is where we are hopeful that you will be able to help. Business cards that highlight an existing (or time sensitive) military discount or promotional items could be included in the bag. The impact could be multifold – more foot traffic thru your front door and a recognition of their military service. We anticipate a need for 150-200 of these bags. Can you help? If we can count on you to assist in this project, please feel free to contact me at 512-923-1587 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
