Lakeside’s Veterans of Foreign War Post #5867, next to Lindo Park, got a jump-start on Valentine’s Day by hosting its inaugural Valentine’s Day dinner dance on Feb. 8.

Paul Boston, commander of the post, said that funds generated at the party were two-fold. Some money will go toward VMM165 White Knights Squadron, a Marine Osprey unit, with a portion going to HSL 123, a Navy helicopter unit.

“The Lakeside post’s focus is to give them (families) support when needed. For example, when they are deployed, we help the families with groceries, car maintenance and other problems. The second priority is our Unmet Needs Program. This program/group also provides another helping hand to assist military members and families,” explained Boston.

Wrangler Family Barbeque catered the delicious dinner, with post members working in the kitchen and serving the guests. The Post Ladies Auxiliary provided the desserts and decorations in the dance hall.
Disc jockeys Keith McDonald and Ed McCoy provided the dance music; they call themselves Two Fat Guys.

McCoy is the current junior vice commander for District 1. McDonald is past district commander for District 1 VFW of San Diego County.

The post has 518 members. They host a lot of dining opportunities, and encourage the public to come get a good meal and help support the various community projects they work on.

For example, every Saturday at noon they cook up a delicious hamburger lunch with homemade chili, potato salad and other fixings.

On Sunday mornings they serve delicious breakfasts, with each week featuring a different menu. The public is welcome to attend these meals. These folks love to cook and they’re good at it. They encourage patrons to help support their cause. Veterans and active troops are invited to participate as well.

Other service projects the post supports are scouting, schools and children with medical issues. Lakeside’s VFW hall is located at 12560 Lindo Lane. For information, call (619) 443-0556.
