Sunday Brunch

Sunday brunch at the VFW with Sisty and friends. Brings back memories of Army chow halls.

 Older post 10/17/21 gave a bit of history about the building.

Banner had to wait in the car but got three pieces of bacon when I returned.

Looks good, like "Home Cookin'".

If we gave Pebbles some bacon she'd follow us around the rest of the day begging for me!

Looks GOOD! Our little group rotates through 3 restaurants for Sunday breakfast. Two are small local non-chain.

Banner is always on the hunt for food.

Are alternate is a family restaurant that defied all mask edicts.

That looks delicious. Nice one. And it does have that chow hall look.

As I mentioned in my earlier blog, there was a WWII German POW camp a few miles to the NW. After the war the place was dismantled and then became an Atlas Missile Site. The VFW hall was built from POW camp buildings. One wing has a huge kitchen.

Many of the German POW worked daily on local farms. They were bussed back & forth from the camp. After they returned to Germany, after the war, quite a few of the farmers they had worked for sponsored they & their families back to Weld County. We have a fairly large German population in the area from that era. They worked, got their own farms and settled into the community.

A neighbor grew up on a farm across from the Post Office off 10th. Several of the immigrants attended her church.
