May 2024:  


We have some new things that we might be trying out and hopefully everything goes as planned.  Stay tuned for more info.  
The 1st annual Vet Fest in Surprise was an absolute success.  It was on February 10th and was held at Mark Coronado Park.  We were very busy that night, we recruited 11 new members and 2 Transfers, sold some merchandise and got the word out to the veterans at the event that we are here for them.  Can't wait until next years event, it will definitely be bigger and even better.  Thanks to all the post members who showed up and helped, and to Post 12098 Buckeye for their help and contributions.  
Check out our Facebook page (VFW Post 285 Surprise AZ) for pics and updates.
