Updated: Mar 17

Good Evening Everyone,


I just received word that the Governor has requested that all restaurants and bars close as of Tuesday 3/17/2020. https://kttc.com/2020/03/16/walz-orders-partial-closure-of-restaurants-bars-other-businesses/


As the Department of MN VFW is not involved with your business activities we do encourage that you follow the Governor's request.


What the Department does have responsibility is with the post functions.



****As of today 3/16/2020 all post meetings and functions will be suspended for the remainder of the month.****



Post meetings do not have to be rescheduled.


The State Hockey Tournament has been canceled.


The State Bowling Tournament has bee canceled


The State cribbage Tournament has been canceled with a possible date to be announced.


The claims office is closed to walk-in clients. They will still be working and taking claims through telework.  Any adjudicated proceedings will remain in effect until further notice. Jon Gohn will advise me with updates.



There will be more information coming out tomorrow as the gambling control board has sent out guidelines and procedures.



If there are any questions please direct them to me and copy the office.



Thank you


Chad Solheid


VFW MN Department Commander
