The local Zephyrhills AMVETS Post 550 found a bigger location and made the move to 4645 Airport Road in Zephyrhills. The Post had previously been located at an older, smaller facility at 4822 Gall Blvd.
During a guided tour, Post Finance Officer Tony Baker proudly pointed out that, “Each division has an office.” That’s something the old facility was not able to accommodate: an office for the Auxiliary, Sons, Officers of the Post and an office for the Post Commander Jim Marshall.
The members seemed extremely happy to have a larger dance floor and nice stage. The building, formerly the Zephyr Palms Event Center and before that the Senior Center on Airport Road, will also be convenient for a USO event sponsored by the AMVETS, slated for the same weekend as the Bivouac and Barracks at the Zephyrhills Airport. Bivouac and Barracks will be Feb. 18-20.
