     Held on certain Saturdays, weather permitting, throughout the year.  Next brat fest is scheduled for Saturday, April 2, 2016, 10:00 am - 3:00 pm, at Post 501 Clubhouse, 105 Dempsey Road.
     Our Post will also sponsor a book sale.  This has been very popular and a delightful surprise to those who thought they were stopping by for only an inexpensive brat meal.  There is a wonderful selection of both hard back and paperback books of various authors and titles of interest.  The prices are very reasonable.  Be sure to browse our sales library in the Clubhouse.  (Thanks Colleen)
     Stop in after an exhausting morning of grocery shopping. You don’t have to cook lunch that day. Bring your family and lots of relatives and friends. If you are on the job that day, don’t forget to treat your co-workers or better yet, bring a truckload of your fellow workers with you.
    We offer Johnsonville brats, hot dogs, with or without buns, condiments, soda or water, and a wide selection of chips. Sorry no alcohol provided (we don’t have a liquor license). We have picnic tables sheltered from the sun/rain if you don’t want to carryout, or eat in your car or on your bike. Plenty of room for parking your car/bike so drive, bike, or walk -- better yet - run for a reasonable priced lunch of Wisconsin brats and hot dogs.
Want to have some fun socializing with fellow veterans? Then join us in the serving line or for setup, or cleanup at the end.  It would be great if a veteran who served in Iraq or Afghan could provide an hour or two of your time on a Saturday morning, we’d really appreciate your helping out.
    Because of the popularity of this brat fest, we encourage you to come early due to the fact that in the past we have run out of the famous Johnsonville brats. 
     We have tentatively scheduled our next Brat Fest / Book Sale for Saturday, May 7th, 10:00 - 3:00 pm.  Check back to our website for location and further details.
