During his recent visit to VFW Calabash Post 7288, the National VFW commander-in-chief stressed the importance of volunteerism within a Post, saying that “without volunteers there would be no Veterans of Foreign Wars organization.” The success of the Calabash Post is witness to that, being blessed with volunteers since it’s beginnings in 1985. A recent project involving volunteers included tearing up an aging asphalt walkway in front of the building that was damaged in part by tree roots that also threatened a corner of the Post building. The pesky tree has been removed and the Post’s Men’s Auxiliary volunteers began the task of laying a new concrete sidewalk in sweltering heat on June 28. The Calabash VFW is always looking for new members and volunteers and those interested may call or visit the Post, located at 900 Carter Drive. The phone number is 910-579-3577.
