The Friends of Benjamin D. Cushing Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2425, and the town of Marion, will be hosting a benefit to recognize the Veterans of Benjamin D. Cushing Post and the Ladies Auxiliary, to honor and thank them for their 80 plus years of service to the town.
The event will be held on Saturday, November 2, at the Post. Italian-style dinner will be served to the honorees. Entertainment will be provided by nationally known Dan Clark, “The Singing Trooper.”
Members of VFW Post 2425 have done extraordinary things for the Town of Marion over the past 81 years. They have raised funds for numerous community projects, including the first ambulance purchased for the town in 1951. Members have been involved in the expansion and renovation of the Elizabeth Taber Library, organized countless parades for Memorial Day, Independence Day and Veterans Day. The veterans serve in military funerals to honor their comrades and remember the sacrifices made for our country.
The Friends of Benjamin D. Cushing Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 2425 and the Town of Marion, invite you to take this opportunity to give back to this wonderful organization. In addition to the dinner event, we are asking for donations to help the Veterans make major repairs to the parking lot at the Post Pavilion.
