Lyons-Dahl VFW Post 5407

KAMIAH — Lyins-Dahl VFW Post No. 5407 and Auxiliary once again had a fine turnout of veterans, families and friends for the annual “Veterans Day Chili Feed.” This activity is held each year to honor veterans on their day, Nov. 11, Veterans Day. The food is donation by VFW members and community businesses to help show the veterans appreciation for their service to the country. An estimated 150 people, including veterans, ate homemade chili, potato soup, corn bread, desserts and beverages. A special highlight of the day was the presentation of a Quilt of Valor to post member Tim Smith. The quilt was made by auxiliary junior vice president Cathie Orr.

Plans are already being made for the next activity: A sausage/pancake breakfast the first Sunday in April.

The post and auxiliary continue to invite individuals to join the group. Since 2015, the auxiliary is no longer only for ladies. Male members of the VFW-eligible veterans are invited to join and participate in VFW activities. For information talk to a current member. Monthly meets are held the second Wednesday of each month at 7 p.m. at the post home, 3376 Tamarack Street, Kamiah.
