      Chicken dinners sold out at VFW fundraiser

      One-hundred-forty half chickens--that was what the Gwinn VFW 5670 Post served up for their fundraiser.

      It was the sixth year the post and Menâ??s Auxiliary hosted their chicken barbecue dinner. For nine dollars, residents received quite the meal: half a chicken, beans, a roll and coleslaw.

      Organizers say every year they sell out all of their meals.

      â??We'll raise a few hundred dollars from this, probably $300," said Bill Rowe, President of Gwinn's VFW Men's Auxillary. "It's all about supporting our veterans in the community and helping out in any way that we can. Just to help support the club and help keep it going."

      All money raised are used by the VFW for programs. For upcoming events or more information on how you can donate, call (906) 346-5670.
