Hillman VFW to mark Veterans Day

Hillman VFW Post 2356 met Nov. 2 for a regular meeting with 13 members in attendance. Members received an update on the post’s longstanding Quartermaster, Mitch Smith, who has been in intensive care for more than two weeks. The group sent out their best wishes to him and his family.

It was announced the Post Honor Guard will meet at the post at 11 a.m. on Saturday for Veterans Day. They will then proceed with programs at Hillman Haven at 12:45 p.m. and Hillman Medi-Lodge at 2 p.m.

On Dec. 9 at 6 p.m., the post will have its annual Christmas dinner for members and their families.

Upcoming problems discussed again were getting money for new chair and needing to replace the old hot water dishwasher for which parts are no longer available.

Volunteers still are needed on Fridays from 4-7 p.m. Volunteers don’t need to be VFW members to help. The Friday Fish Fry features cod, walleye and shrimp every week and to go meals. There will be no fish fry on Nov. 24, the day after Thanksgiving.
