Zach worked hard for Lakeville VFW
To the editor:
I would like to say “Thanks” to Arnold Zach for serving as commander of the Lakeville VFW 210 for the last four years. It was close to closing its doors and he stepped in to keep it going.
Along the way a lot happened – the business he did with a local business told him he could no longer serve them (after 13 years). His car was keyed, was given two flat tires and he received emails of threats due to decisions he had to make. These decisions were made under a lot of thought and honest hardships. The community needs the VFW and the veterans need a place to go and get together.
The community uses the VFW for meetings, weddings, showers, reunions, funeral meals, Lions, Pan-O-Prog and the list goes on.
The Boy Scouts have helped and served with the veterans and they have come in and painted, helped with events. Some students and their parents/teachers have encouraged them to come in and listen to speakers share their stories of experiences of why we have our freedom in this great nation.
Thank you to those who have supported the VFW, veterans and the community of Lakeville.
I thank Commander Zach for his service, honesty and integrity and being a wonderful example to many.
ANNETTE L. ZACH, wife of 42 years
