The Bloomer Veterans Of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 6175 would like to thank everyone who supported their brat stand on Thursday and Friday, July 2–3. Over 700 brats and hot dogs were sold over the two day time period. The money goes back to the community for scholarships, for the veterans home in Chippewa Falls, to the Bloomer Fire Department and Bloomer Community Ambulance service. The Bloomer VFW also participates in the Bloomer rope jump contest, and local parades.

Remember, meetings are every second Thursday of the month at 7 p.m.
