The Robert L Johnson Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 771 of Springfield will be having an awards dinner on Saturday, Dec. 19. The ham dinner will begin at 6 p.m. followed by presenting the following awards.
We have two National Citizenship Education Teacher Awards, and awards to our Patriot's Pen Essay and Voice of Democracy Essay winners. We will also be awarding a Firefighters Award.
Recognizing local heroes, heroines, patriots and outstanding youth with VFW awards, citations and medals is one of ways the Veterans of Foreign Wars encourage America's young adults to higher ideals and greater personal achievement.
Call the post at 885-6008 for reservations.
The cost of the meal is $8 per person.
