Post 8870 participated with the Rotary Club of Edmonds Octoberfest event Sept. 23 & 24. We had 4 volunteers to hand out Buddy Poppies and make VFW membership applications available to festival visitors. Participating with Commander Carl Kurfess were Les Abel, Bryan Rowe and Pete Farmer. The members handed out a bunch of poppies & flags. and collected $ 21 in donations, as well as membership applications and VFW info. No applicants signed up on the spot.
Above right, the post’s tent was broken out of storage for the event, and Commander Carl set up a separate tent for a display from the Northwest Veterans Museum, shown at left.
