-- Brainerd VFW Summer Picnic --
Sunday, August 28, 2022: The annual Post and Auxiliary Picnic was a great success at St. Mathias Park. Walmart provided hamburgers and bratwurst, along with five employees. Saundra Swearingen had games for the kids. Sue Sterling used calligraphy to make name signs for kids. Walmart gift certificates were given as door prizes. Brainerd VFW Senior Vice Commander Kevin Jensen and Junior Vice Commander Scott Hall were introduced as new members of Post leadership. A rousing game of Bean Bag was played. Richard Maske and Zach Day were the winners. Lots of fun for everyone.
August 8, 2021: The Brainerd VFW held its summer picnic for all paid members and families of the Brainerd VFW and Auxiliary. The fun started at noon.
