Meetings are normally scheduled for the third Thursday of every month. This schedule is set forth in the Local Lodge’s Bylaws. However, occasionaly certain circumstances can create a need for the Local Lodge to deviate from this schedule. When such changes are necessary, these changes are voted upon and approved by the Local Lodge Membership during a regularly scheduled meeting and such changes will also be communicated via this web site, union bulletin boards and email.
Currently our monthly meetings are being held at the Jacksonville, Arkansas Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW). Also known as the Michael W. Ray VFW Post 4548, the VFW is located at 6704 Old Highway 67 in Cabot (if you’re using a GPS/Navigation system such as Apple or Google Maps).
Meetigs begin at 4:30pm and you must wear a face mask to enter the building! (This is the VFW’s current COVID-19 policy, and meeting attendees must respect and adhere to their policy until it is changed.) Refreshments are served prior to the meeting. Even though there is a bar in the establishment, no alcoholic drinks will be permitted in the meeting room. The Lodge also discourages the consumption of alcoholic beverages prior to the meeting.
Immediately following each meeting, members may stick around for drinks at the bar (at your own expense) and build camaraderie with fellow Brothers and Sisters over a game of pool (billiards).
