Though it was a hard day of work to prepare that many pork ribs it was a fun time! A lot of smack talk between the veteran competing teams but at the end of the day a lot of great food was enjoyed by our supporters. Even veteran US Rep Jimmy Panetta stopped by to show his support of Team Post 635!
Greenfield Veterans Memorial Hall needs OUR help!
As most of us growing up in Greenfield we have fond memories of parties, events and functions and some not so fond while attending funeral receptions. The Greenfield Memorial Hall has been part of Greenfield since 1934 when American Legion Post 635 was established for Veterans to come together to be among familiar company. Yes, we may have returned home but for many of us home had become as foreign and strange as the countries we were sent too. I don't expect anyone to understand what something like Post 635 means unless you have packed all your gear, laced up your boots, hugged and kissed family and friends perhaps for the last time and said goodbye to everything you known and loved you will only see walls doors and a bar to enjoy. For the small group of people who have, being among others who can relate is the only thing to keep us sane. In 1956 the Hall as we know it today was established so that Veterans could not only be around one another they could also invite family, friends and the community together. Sadly, as time has passed as we say goodbye to our aging brothers and sisters those who kept traditions alive, with a difficult task to replace them the Veterans Memorial Hall has seen better days. Now I'm asking for your help to give the Veterans Memorial Hall the desperate attention it deserves. For many of us growing up in Greenfield this building has provided many memories. Please help me in keeping those memories alive and creating many more. The Veterans Memorial Hall needs a lot of attention! Let's give it the attention it requires.
