Robert J Freego Amvets 282, 6771, U.S. Highway 11, will honor all area Vietnam veterans for their service by hosting a free chicken BBQ Saturday, May 19, at 5 p.m. The meal is free to each veteran and a guest. Post 282 is growing in membership and expanding their space by renovating a new banquet room just in time for the meal. By making the post larger, Amvets 282 will be able to host parties, wedding receptions, and family reunions. All Vietnam veterans are invited, and encouraged to RSVP as soon as possible at 315-528-9543. Some ‘construction crew’ members who are also Amvets members take a break for a picture after working on the new banquet room. From left Joe Briggs, Dave McMartin, Ron Tebo and Charles Schloer.
