VFW Post 9592 Celebrates St. Patricks Day

VFW Post 9592 held its St Patrick’s Day Dinner on Saturday March 11, 2017. The day started bright and early for the members of the Post who had to get ready for an estimated 160 guests. Actually, it started days before when Past Commander Barry Scheu and Junior-Vice Commander Fred Wedin headed out shopping for all the great food that would be served. Pounds of Corned Beef, Cabbage, Carrots, Potatoes, Irish Soda Bread and dessert were bought and properly stored awaiting the magic touch of Chef Michael Smith on Saturday.

Saturday arrived with Comrades Matthew DeGregorio, Jim Hasselmann, Robert Spicer, Rich Hensl, Alfred Mancini, Peter Stasinski, Barry Scheu, Andy Johnson and Jim Duffy along with Auxiliary members Peter Roach and Jim and Pat Nocerino along with their daughter Trina, descending upon the Post to decorate and set-up the hall. As work in the hall progressed the kitchen was busy with Fred and Mike cooking a traditional St Patrick’s Day meal.

It wasn’t long before the guests started arriving. Here they entered a beautifully decorated hall where the pride of America and Erin were on display. As they made their way to their seats they could not help but notice a small table in the rear and center of the hall, raised to standout, surrounded by an American and POW/MIA Flag, with a place setting for one and a POW/MIA seatback cover. It was strategically placed there to remind all of the guests that there are still members of the U.S. Armed Services who are Prisoners of War or Missing in Action.

Once all of the guests were in the hall and seated the night began with the Master of Ceremonies (MC) requesting all those present to stand for the National Anthem, performed by Fred McFarland, the Pledge of Allegiance and the Invocation, which was delivered by Post Chaplain Comrade John Turino. Immediately after the Invocation the guest were asked to be seated and to direct their attention to the POW/MIA table, which was now flanked by Comrade Jim Duffy and Comrade Alfred Mancini. The brilliance of the lights in the hall was dimmed to the point where only the lights over the table were on. The haunting instrumental sound of "The Hymn of the Fallen” played low enough to add to the solemnity of the MC’s reading and explanation of the POW/MIA table and each of the objects on the table. As the reading ended and the music trailed off, the guests were given a few seconds to remember our POWs and MIAs. Once completed, the Commander of the Post addressed the guests and thanked all who were involved in making the evening happen. A few more announcements were made and then the festivities began with plenty of Irish music played by the DJ Gene Woska.

Dinner for the guests was served family style. Trays containing Corned Beef and Trays containing Cabbage, Carrots and Potatoes were delivered to each table. The guest helped themselves to some of the best cooked Corned Beef which easily could have rivaled anything a restaurant might serve. It was absolutely delicious and the guest later showed their appreciation to the Chef with a huge cheer and a standing ovation.

After the dinner it was now time to salute our Armed Forces and Veterans with the playing of the Armed Forces Medley. As each service song was played the Veterans of that particular branch were asked to stand and be recognized and show their pride in their service. This is a fun time when everyone enthusiastically claps and cheers those who stand, especially when the Commander stands to show pride of his service in his beloved Air Force.

Once the salute was over Duffy’s Bar was opened for business in the rear of the hall where he served coffee with a little bit of Irish cheer in it. Meanwhile dessert was being served in the front of the hall. Guess which line was longer.

As the evening started coming to an end and after the 50/50 raffle, which was run by Auxiliary members Pat Nocerino and Monique Rogers, was called, the guests were called once again to participate in a long standing tradition of VFW Post 9592, the singing of "God Bless America”. As over one hundred voices united in love of country sang this beautiful patriotic song, it was the perfect ending to a perfect party.

VFW Post 9592 would like to thank everyone who made this event successful, especially those members, like Mike who worked the sink cleaning Pots, pans, trays, etc throughout the party, and the members and guests who stayed after to clean-up.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day
