Residents concerned that VFW patriotic heirlooms could be lost with sale of the building for a restaurant
A group of patriotic and historic preservation-minded residents have taken notice that the former VFW Post 4141 building, 5 SE Second Ave., downtown has been sold and that patriotic heirlooms attached to the building could be lost during renovation and demolition.

It’s not currently apparent why the VFW didn’t take the wood seal sign to their new location.
On the city’s March 28 Site Plan and Review Board agenda, there was a listing for Racks Restaurant represented by local lawyers Weiner, Lynne, & Thompson, for a Class III Site Plan Modification associated with conversion of a vacant 3,151-square-foot commercial building (former VFW Lodge) to a restaurant. The property is located on the east side of Southeast Second Avenue between East Atlantic Avenue and Southeast First Street.
