JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - The Veterans of Foreign Wars and Auxiliary Post 1991 in Jonesboro held a family day Saturday at the VFW.

The event included food, games, music and gave many veterans an opportunity to interact with the community.

The organization opened the event to the public and had a dual purpose.

'It's to help raise money for the TVs for our veterans home in Fort Roots," Conductress Courtney Sutherland said. "Our goal is to get 67 TVs. They're building a new home for our vets and so far it's been extremely successful, everyone's out here having a good time. Another reason why we had this event is to help tie the ties between our veterans and the community."

Anyone who wants to  join the post or get involved can contact Mark Davis at (870) 335-6982.
