THE DURAND VFW POST 2272 held a mortgage burning party Saturday, June 3, and more than 100 VFW members and supporters gathered in celebration at the Durand VFW Post, 923 N. Saginaw St. in Durand, which opened in 1985. The club has borrowed against the mortgage a few times to build the social club; add air conditioning, bathrooms, and a generator; and also when the well needed to be replaced. Now though, the charitable can focus more of its resources and energy on raising funds to help the community.

    Four of the club’s living past commanders led the celebration, with (from left) Dennis Martin, Bert Winer, John Dungerow, and Charles Nelson throwing the first papers on the fire.
