Ph. 265-3255.
 
We are renewing a fundraising effort that was started a number of years ago. The ceiling tiles of the Canteen are stenciled with the names of members and Ladies that gave to the Post in the past and wanted to have their names enshrined at the Post. For a minimum donation of $10.00 you can have your name among our previous donors. If you wish to participate, send your donation with your name as you want it to appear to:
    VFW Post 112
    1560 S. Topeka
    Wichita, Kansas 67211
These moneys will help us continue our support of veterans in the community, at our local VA Hospital or wherever a veteran is in need.
We Thank You for your support.
