The WHCVFD met Monday for their monthly business meeting. Thirteen members were present. There wasn’t much on the agenda, so the meeting ended quick. On Aug. 9, Grimes County VFW Post 4006 has free Bingo beginning at 5:30 p.m. and cornhole through Grimes County Cornhole beginning around 7 p.m. Food will be available provided by the Post.
There is a benefit for Otis Greenwood Aug. 13, at the Plantersville-Stoneham VFD. The event will run from 11 a.m. - 2 p.m. or until the food runs out. The following will be served: two meat plate $15; turkey leg $10; sausage on a stick $5. Only cash will be accepted. Otis is in the hospital recovering from surgery and the fundraiser is dedicated to assisting with medical expenses. On Aug. 20 a craft fair has been planned at the VFW Post. If you are interested, please call the Post, 936-825-3666 and leave a message for the Commander.
