I have noticed the Higbee VFW is being ran like its a night club or something. Myself and a few members agree thats it's way to loud and seems to be full of young kids. The membership fee is only 35 dollars a year and should 35 a quarter year. In Higbee they don't even have vetreans running the place. to my knowledge bob is the only one. the main cook and bartender is a felon. Now maybe there has been a few rule changes or laws that change but that should not be happening. In most other VFW's anyone can drink but has to be with a vetrean to even get into the bar area. Big changes need to be made at this VFW, In my opinion you are riunung the state VFW good name.

First of all the kids go in to eat something rather than having to get the same thing time and time again from Casey's. VFW serves great food and why is it not right for kids to go and help support them.(I think it is great) With the price of living whats wrong with what is voted on???(membership fees) Members do have a life too & if people are willing to donate their time to run the place who cares?(Do you offer to help saying you are a member)&(the books are being keep no money is lost or stolen)& (it's OPEN for you too)In most VFW's their is the catch (MOST)How many people do you invite in to the bar area to help support it. Oh well again someone trying to start trouble when there is a good thing going on and it was not your ideal.

I agree with a good thing. The food there is great and the people that help run are as well.No one causes trouble there are all there to help out our local VFW.When you go to the VFW you get fast friendly service,So why does it matter that someone has felonie?? People change right? Maybe that person has changed their life and wants to give back to the community.
I rememeber when the VFW wasnt doing so great and was aout to get shut down.I think Bob,The cook, and other people that help out there are doing a wonderful job and it shouldnt matter who is running it because i think they get alot of people in there which leads to more money for the VFW. KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK VFW POST 3014 YOUR DOING A GREAT JOB!!!!!

All anyone has to do to find out how legit such local groups are is to contact the VFW State office in Jefferson City or the State Liquor Control office. They can clear up whether this group is really a VFW Post, has a liquor license, or whatever.

I think it's really great that the kids in Higbee have a bar to hang out in. Kids really belong in a smoke filled room full of adults drinking, a lot of really good decisions get made when alcohol is involved.

The Higbee Vfw post has done all the right steps to get to where they are now i just think that is stupid that people take something good that bring people to higbee and want to turn it into something bad or complain about it. Higbee people that want to sit there and bad mouth one another or bad talk about the people that open places up to bring in business need to grow up your a community that should work together not work against each other. When will people some together and help each other make this community better unstead of standing back and hoping it falls apart.

not saying people can't change, I have met denny 3 or 4 times and he seems ok, I'm saying it's against the law and probably agency policy. I am a member of the VFW but not in Higbee. BY kids a meant the rude and loud kids between 21 and 25. although you are right and alot of minors are inside the place on friday nights. I'm just saying as a state agency All VFW's should follow state law. If you want to run a night club full of kids and minors that does nothing for vetreans and is not operated for vetrans and thier families, why not just change the name of your place.

Well if you think that its being ran as a night club then you havent been to a night club lol night clubs are alot more loud and dance floors and i know denny and he has changed and i know ive been in there a few times and it aint kids 21-25 being loud and rude its 30 something aged people and after all that was over they put up signs. And the VFW is non profit and all the money that is made there goes towards to help the higbee VFW and to help vetrans. I think this is all about someone wanting to start trouble because they have nothing better to do.Never heard anyone complain till here recently back in the day it was ran down and didnt get alot of customers but now that they are doing good people want to hide behind a computer and bad mouth grow a set and if you have a probably on how they run it go to them and tell them your concerns.
Most people just want to start trouble and who cares who is in there drinking or doing good things for the VFW on their own time for FREE it benifits and makes money for our vetrans right??Denny has brought more business to that place then anyother person that has ever TRIED to do anything for that and he does it all for free the only thing your wanting to do is bring up his past and start trouble WHO CARES!!He seems like he has turned over a new leaf in his life and is on the right path now and tryin to help the community that he grew up in and the vetrans that go to that vfw stop trying to down people and be glad that the vfw has bettered its self with dennys help.

There are 2 sides to the VFW 1 for drinking, playing games and enjoying good company, then there is the part that serves food and has a t.v. in there. So you are saying you don't approve of other people helping the VFW but Veteran's? Is Veteran's the only people who you want money from? I think it is good that all walks of life can spend their money to help the Veteran's that have stood and fought for our rights. Keep up the good work all you people who are trying to make a difference in that little town. Go VFW !!!!

You go Denny & I think you have a lot of people to back you up. I agree with people staring bull$hit. some people don't want good to happen in Higbee, well bro KEEP COOKING THEM GOOD MEALS!! Everybody loves your cooking. That other guy who cooks does a great job too. I am thinking all of you that are helping run the place are doing a good thing. Keep it up.

So Vernon, where are you when the meetings are being held? If you are so worried about the way it is being run, SPEAK UP, or SHUT UP. To anybody who does not like the way it is being run, show your face at a meeting and say it. Put your 2 cents in and to the member of the VFW, why are you raising so much of a fuse? The VFW would not make it if only members and their guest were the only 1's that were in the place supporting it. How many members are there? Pay the bills, run the place, cook, clean, was you up at the fair helping? The town is trying to help by keeping this VFW open. And for all the people that do donate their time, Thanks for helping!!! I bet I can guess who you are too.(N.J.)

I want to THANK all those that support our VFW Post 3014. I also want to thank Denny, David, Carlene, Dora and many others that have volunteered their time to help us out. If it were not for them, it would be tough to get the job done. My wife and I can NOT spend our lives there and for the past three years {?} we have. Yes we have helped Vets families, for example, one Christmas, took a trunk LOADED with food to a family while he was fighting, we have donated to the Higbee High School, the Betterment Committee, and the City, among other things. I promise that we DO try to do our BEST and our records can PROVE where ALL the money has gone. I am proud of what we have done thus far, and Thank all the others too that have helped us, Ralph, BJ, many more. Thank you ALL

"Best food in town", dubious distinction isn't it? Congrats, your food is better than the gas station.

speaking of money, I seriously doubt all the people named above are honestly just voluntering. I'm sure they are either getting paid for time or working out something. perhaps it's not on paper but seems funny that 7 or 8 people would just do it for something to do. this was our first fair and there were a ton of minors in the beer tent then too. so you cant really fault the vfw for minors when the fair board had minors too. Seems like a common practice in this town.

what is wrong with the fair board having minors? "Get the children involved" is a great thing!!!
7 or 8 people volunteering whats so wrong with that? I myself think it is great to have people doing it. Get involved with all you can. Thank God for volunteers!!
