WESTBOROUGH – Three years after a fire shut it down, officials with the VFW Post 9013 on Milk Street remain committed to reopening.

According to Post Commander Michael Van Nest, litigation connected with the fire was settled in April.

“VFW Post 9013 is committed to opening the building, developing a refurbishment plan and determining a path forward to continue our mission of supporting veterans in our community,” he said in a statement. “VFW Post 9013’s mission is to support the veterans and families in the Westborough and adjacent towns while also being an active participant within our community.”

In May 2021, a fire caused damage to the outside of the structure, and “considerable damage to the inside,” according to Van Nest.

The post has remained closed since then.
