McHenry VFW Post #4600
3002 West Route 120
McHenry Illinois 60051
Memorial Day is our first major event for the post and it is celebrated with the other Combined Veterans of McHenry. Next up is
Flag Day, June 14th where we retire our worn and tattered flags in a very respectful ceremony. Next on our calendar is our 4th of
July Picnic where we sit down and enjoy some traditional hot dogs and hamburgers (maybe some corn on the cob) if we’re lucky.
Still hungry look out here comes our VFW steak fry in August where you cook your own steak over charcoal. Taking a break for now
as we head to November 11th Veterans Day, which is also celebrated with the Combined Veterans of McHenry.
Hope your taste buds and muscle are intact as the Combined Veterans of McHenry go up for Thanksgiving Day where since the
middle of August we will have been planning what perhaps is the greatest event all year. Starting a 6:00am we start preparing a
turkey dinner complete with all the fixins. In the past years we have served anywhere from 120 to 300 sailors from Great Lakes
Naval Station, this is one day you will never forget. Then last but not least is our Christmas dinner at our December post meeting.
The above has not included our daily and weekly operations that take place. We serve lunch and dinner Tuesday through Sunday
with daily specials. So there you have it all in nut shell, are you up to the task to start serving at this All American VFW Post, the
highest honored given to any VFW Post? Welcome Comrade as you sign the dotted line you will never regret walking through OUR
POST HOME DOOR.
Trustee, Past Commander
