VFW Post 12024 is looking for locations for its annual fundraiser, which it hasn’t held for two years.
Quartermaster Everett Ison said the club, which meets at the South County Community Center at 2235 Lake Robbins Drive, The Woodlands, has been strained as members have been unable to meet due to COVID restrictions -19.
“We have seen peaks in anxiety, people having problems making ends meet,” he said.
Across all veterans organizations, the effects of bar closures have been felt in 2020 as bars are an important source of income for them. The Woodlands Post does not have a building of its own, so while lost revenue from canteen sales is not an issue locally, the Post has lost revenue typically generated from its annual fundraisers.
As of mid-October, there was no location planned for the following year’s fundraiser, which includes events such as a banjo and a magic show.
The post is researching information on all available local spaces that would be suitable and available for the fundraising event. Information and contacts for the position can be found at www.vfw12024.org.
