Fundraiser to suit new Westborough VFW building fund “to a tee”

Westborough – Just off the Westborough rotary, at 9A Milk St., is a small building that is home to the town's Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 9013. The building, which the VFW has used for over 50 years, is only about 60 by 80 feet, and is poorly insulated, making it chilly in winter and warm in summer. Although a wheelchair can fit through the building's entrances, the bathrooms are not handicapped-accessible. Inside there is only room for a few tables and a bar for patrons.
