A familiar smiling face to the West Fargo VFW retired last week after 19 years.

JoAnn Bear served her last customers as a waitress working Friday and Saturday evenings. Although she won’t be waiting on tables every week, Bear hopes to spend one evening a month back at the establishment mingling with customers.


“I plan to keep working the senior days,” Bear said. “That’s the first Tuesday of every month.”
