In honor of its 40th Anniversary, the Marble Falls Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10376 got a major facelift.

“We’ve totally redecorated and repainted,” said Former Post Commander Lloyd Crippen, and added that the biggest change for the post is “we’ve gone non-smoking.”

Crippen said the post is also starting a live music program, and will celebrate all these changes by hosting a grand reopening on Oct. 17.

“We’re trying to get a new demographic to come check us out,” Crippen said. “It’s a great place with great people.”

Canteen Manager Tom Fox describes the post canteen as “a tavern of loyal Americans exchanging ideas,” and added, “We want our smoking friends to still come. We have tables outside.”
