Our new sign was installed today. Also our 35 ft. plus flag pole was also screwed to it base. The base goes in the ground around 3 to 4 ft. and there are 4 bolts and nuts which get tightened down. That flag pole weighed over 300 pounds. The smaller flag poles weigh less and we should be able to get those up before long. The sign will soon have a digital sign on top and can be seen from either side. ...

At 2:30 p.m. today Indiana Gov. Holcomb ask all restaurants and bars to close service to those going to their place of business to eat or drink on their premises. They will allow carry-out of food from restaurants; beer, wine and liquor sales by the can or bottle as a carryout. District 7 Commander Cory Mahan spoke to the State Excise Police and all organizations like the VFW are considered to be a bar and therefore it is necessary for VFW Post 5864 to close until the Quarantine is lifted by the State of Indiana. The VFW and VFW Auxiliary meetings on Tuesday, March 17 will not be held. The Pin-Ups on Tour which was to be held on Saturday, March 21 will be rescheduled. The VFW and VFW Auxiliary annual Community Service Awards program scheduled for Tuesday, March 24 will also be rescheduled. We apologize for these changes in our daily and weekly schedules, however we feel that it is of utmost importance to do protect our members as well as members of the community by complying with necessary rules to get through the COVID-19 issues. Please spread the word to your neighbors and friends alerting them to this information.

Thanks for supporting us during this difficult time.

VFW Post 5864 has moved. Our first final inspection today was a little rough. There were several items that needed addressed. Nothing super major. The various contractors will make the changes and additions necessary and then get a re-inspection and hopefully pass it and open up. It appears from what needs to be completed that it may be Tuesday, March 3 before we are able to open up. Safety is of course the most important aspect of opening a business and we want to make sure we are "good to go". Thanks for hanging in with us. -- Steve Milbourn, Commander ...

Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of this week about 15 members and friends gathered to begin moving the Post's "stuff" to the new facility. On Tuesday, a moving company with 4 employees and 2 large trucks moved all of the big items in about 6-1/2 hours. On Wednesday we moved boxes and boxes of various things that we had to box up. We still have a few items to box up on Thursday and take to the new Post. The last big item that was moved was our pool table. While it is still apart, we are having new rails installed and the table recovered. It should be ready the first of the week. The Post is scheduled for a Contractor walk-thru inspection on Thursday and an inspection by the City Building Dept., Fire Dept., and the County Health Dept. Once we are approved and issued a Certificate of Occupancy, we will be able to open for business. We are anticipating being open around Wednesday, Feb. 26 however all of our contractors must have their jobs completed properly so the City and others will be able to give us the go-ahead. It's primarily about safety. Tomorrow is a big day. The carpet and vinyl tile will be completed; any touch-up painting; some additional wiring, plumbing and making sure everything is right; cleaning and so forth. We believe you will enjoy visiting with us. Thanks for hanging in with us. -- Steve Milbourn, Commander -- VFW Post 5864. ...
