2019 Fairfax Fall Festival

VFW Post 8469 was out in force at the Fairfax Fall Festival in downtown Fairfax City today. We helped man the Beer Tent for which we get a cut of the money, all of which goes into the post funds to support veterans. Additionally, we manned a post tent and recruited two new members, two potential transfers,and three additional possible members. At the tent, we also raffled off a Flag of Valor flag (donated by Bill J.) and two very nice hand made children’s books from Norma L. Many thanks to all the post members who came out to support.
