The public is invited to attend the grand opening ceremony of the Brazil Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1127 at the new location at 303 South Depot Street, Saturday. Doors open at 11:27 a.m.

Those interested in attending are encouraged to bring a covered dish for the carry-in dinner, and spend the day participating in raffles and giveaways and free entertainment.

Guests are invited to sing karaoke from 3 p.m.-7 p.m. and then, beginning at 8 p.m., enjoy music from Midwest Playboys Band until midnight.

The new facility is the culmination of more than 20 years of VFW members organizing fundraisers, which were supported by the community, with the intention of building the new post.

In October 2007, the members announced they were ready to start the building process, which included a larger, and more modern kitchen area, a new smoke-free Bingo game room, a small bar and dance floor and an area that could be used for social events.
