Bill Harding: Flu shot clinic postponed
Craig — The scheduled flu shot clinic for actively enrolled veterans at the Craig Teleclinic on Oct. 30 has to be cancelled.
Although the Teleclinic staff was looking forward to providing this service locally as previously published, unfortunately they have run out of the vaccine and will not be resupplied by the VAMC in Grand Junction until after the scheduled date.
They will reschedule a date for walk-ins, as soon as they receive new vaccine and are still planning a second flu shot clinic for Nov. 27.
If you need to get a flu shot prior to this and have Medicare Part B, please go to the nearest site offering shots in the Craig area.
VFW Restaurant grand reopening
The Craig VFW Restaurant grand reopening is scheduled for Friday Nov. 2.
They will be running a luncheon and dinner special. The luncheon special will be fish and chips or the shrimp basket. The dinner special will be prime rib and shrimp with an all-you-caneat salad bar, veggie and dessert.
The restaurant has been open unofficially for the past month as they hired new cooks and wait staff. The club has reopened with a new management team led by Penny Nelson.
There have been some menu changes, and we are moving back to the Friday Night Special program.
The hours open to the public are Monday through Friday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and Saturdays 4 to 8 p.m. They are closed Sundays except for Bingo operations.
The facilities and services are also available to schedule club meetings, church and/or memorial dinners, holiday gatherings or other events such as dances, weddings, etc. Just contact Penny, and we’ll get the details and services set up.
Looking for the good samaritan
Would like to thank and also locate the good samaritan that assisted with the bicycle/car accident Oct. 17 at Sixtth and Pershing Street in order to return the blanket/ground cloth to them.
The bicyclist that was hit was a 60-year-old veteran and my brother. We have the blue plaid blanket that you lent him while he was still on the pavement and would like to return it to you. I wish to thank you publicly for attending to Jeff during this incident.
