Veterans of Foreign Wars’ meetings return to airport

The flagpole at the Payette Municipal Airport, placed by the Payette Veterans of Foreign Wars Post in 2006, is pictured Friday afternoon. Having saved the airport from sell-off years prior, the post will begin holding its meetings in the airport’s lounge in June.

PAYETTE — For years, progress on the Main Street site of the future Payette Veterans of Foreign Wars hall has been stalled. But the Payette City Council is making a concession to the members of Post 2738, to help them find some stability.

At its regular meeting on May 15, the council heard a request by post leadership to use the Payette Municipal Airport Lounge for its monthly meetings. The post’s membership meets on the third Saturday of each month at 9 a.m.
