Once again the Bandon VFW Medal of Honor Post No. 3440 has put on a successful event by sponsoring the "Gravedigger's Ball." The Gravedigger's Ball had been in existence for approximately 30 years, started by the late Ruthanne McSurdy-Wong. Since the ball had not been celebrated in the last few years, our staff voted to use the name to honor Ms. McSurdy-Wong's legacy.
I wish to thank all of the volunteers for their help and to our local businesses who went above and beyond to donate the many door prizes.
The VFW is a nonprofit organization serving our veterans and our community. Our next event will be a free spaghetti dinner to all of our veterans, members or not, public invited, on Sunday, Nov. 12, from 4-6 p.m.
Our post is one of the largest on the Oregon Coast. Please visit our facility and take advantage of what we have to offer to our community. We are located at 55382 Bates Road.
Commander, VFW Post No. 3440
