On Aug. 15 the VFW Club went under new management. Since then the new manger, Peggy Korleski, has been busy refurbishing and cleaning the carpets, ceiling and dance floor at the Club.

Korleski plans to have plenty of activities for her patrons while they're enjoying their time at the Club. She recently had a new internet jukebox installed, along with a pinball machine and a foosball table, video machine games that dispense drink coupons, and, of course, a pool table. On Fridays and Sundays, poker tables are set up in the game room for poker tournaments.

Korleski's plan for the large party room is to utilize the stage for a D.J. to be able to come in and set up, and she also hopes to have live entertainment. "If there are any bands out there, give me a call," said Korleski.

The Club will still be available for wedding, anniversaries, meetings or any special gathering, and Korleski will also have catering available for special occasions. She hopes to have a broaster oven and a flat top grill for serving food in the future.

She would also like to start an after-school program from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. "We need a place for the kids to come in and hang out. They can use the stage for a jam session, for example. We're trying to get the kids involved with something."

When asked how the regular VFW patrons have adjusted to the new management, Korleski replied, "The locals have been treating us very good and are very happy that the Club is staying open longer."

The Club's new hours are noon to midnight, Sunday through Thursday, and noon to 2 a.m. on Friday and Saturday. It is located at 113 E. Maple St. For more information on booking your special event call Peggy at 225-9912.
