Message from the Commander,

It is with deep sadness that we share the news of Past VFW Post 205 Commander Dick Bielecki. I understand he passed last night with family at his side.

Dick was a long time member of our post and he will be greatly missed. He was a very active member and his contributions are too numerous to count.

Please keep Dick & Lynda in your prayers.

Sincerely,

Lee Crewson
Commander

*** FISH FRY FRIDAY (4/3/2020)***

Come on down and visit our friends at the East Aurora American Legion Post # 362, tomorrow between 4-7 pm, for Their second to last week of the annual Lenten Fish Fry! Last week they were able to serve over 500 of you and they are stocked up to exceed that tomorrow. For those of you who were there towards 7pm last week, they are sorry that they started to run out of American and German Potato Salads, they hope you found your enlarged portions of Fries and Mac Salad delightful. They have made quite a bit more of the salads this week!
Thank you to everyone who has supported the Legion this year. In these uncertain times, it means everything for them to remain financially able to support everything they do in our great community, and they sincerely appreciate it. See you tomorrow!

03/26/2020

***ATTENTION***

The Legion's "Take-Out Only" Lenten Fish Fries will continue this Friday (3/27) with a few changes based on lessons learned last week. All meals will be served with ALL of our different salads and fries, this will limit your ordering choices to "Battered, Broiled, or Chicken Fingers". The Legion is also eliminating the call-ahead telephone ordering. Please just head on down to the post between 4 - 7pm and place your order, and it will be delivered curbside. The Legion anticipates that these changes will significantly shorten any wait times.

As a reminder, the meals cost $13 ($11 for Seniors), and all meals will be served with Macaroni Salad, American Potato Salad, German Potato Salad, Coleslaw, French Fries, a slice of Rye, and the Main Dish of your choice (Battered/Broiled/Chicken Fingers).

Lastly, and most importantly, THANK YOU for all of your support to the Legion and your understanding as the Legion shifted their operations to Take-out Only. Our friends at the Legion truly appreciate it.

Please stay safe during these trying times and don't hesitate to reach out (you can message this page, or call any officer) if you need anything.

MEMORIAL DAY 1936...With only four Civil War veterans remaining in its membership, the East Aurora Grand Army of the Republic chapter, which had organized Memorial Day observances for nearly seven decades, transferred responsibility of the 1936 commemoration to East Aurora Post 362 -The American Legion, which began alternating chairmanship of the event with VFW Post 205. East Aurora's five remaining Civil War veterans were featured in the newspaper the previous year, before the death of G.A.R. Commander John B. Buffum. (Article from the May 14, 1936 issue of the East Aurora Advertiser, in the archives of the Aurora Town Historian's Office).
Thank you to VFW Post 205 for their generous donation! We are so grateful for everything you do for our community.
Good morning East Aurora! Please come support the VFW for the best chicken BBQ in town! Dine-in or take out (no drive thru). $14 per meal. 12pm until sold out at the American Legion Post off Center St! Thank you very much for the continued support!
