Third Friday is also known as "Cookie Day!"

Every Third Friday of the month, the Auxiliary of VFW Post 10859 takes part in "Cookie Day" at the VA Clinic, in Bakersfield, for everyone at the Clinic. They start at about 9:00 a.m. and serve cookies until they run out. The Clinic has coffee and Crystal Light on hand for those that desire it.

Cookies are distributed until they run out or Noon, whichever comes first.

Cookies are provided by the several Bakersfield VFW Auxiliaries participating,  including the Auxiliary of VFW Post 10859. 

Donations: If you would like to make a donation to "Cookie Day" here is some information for you. The easiest way is to simply make a cash donation to the VFW Auxiliary closest to you.

Note from VFW Post 10859 Commander;

  It's always our intent to give credit to all the Members that work so hard to support our local Veterans. But when we move outside of our own Post we could use some help, If we've missed someone or did not give credit where credit is due, please don't be upset or offended. A simple note through our Contact Page and we will make the appropriate additions or corrections to ensure everyone is mentioned. We have been asking for help, and if you are able to provide names and organizations or any other information to improve this or any other page, it would add tremendous improvements to our website.

Thank you so much for you understanding, patience, and assistance,

Gunner Bill Holland
