Reynolds – In Mercer County, the Veterans of Foreign Wars post 7599 of Reynolds was completely destroyed by fire one week ago, but thanks to help from the residents of Pymatuning Township it was able to hold a scheduled event on Saturday night. With the post’s home destroyed members of the VFW relocated the clubhouse to a pavilion across the street and with the eager assistance of over 100 volunteers transformed the space into a bar and venue in less than a day.  By Saturday night, Post 7599 hosted a concert at their new temporary clubhouse dubbed the Glenn “Mickey” McKnight Pavilion.
Despite the positive news, the VFW lost countless treasured keepsakes in the fire, including monuments for past members of the club and the service records of dozens of members.
