VFW to ban smoking starting Sept. 1

Proulx: 'It's a positive change for a positive future'

August 28, 2012
SOUTHBRIDGE — Effective this weekend, the Southbridge VFW is banning smoking indoors, after what new Commander Ronald Proulx described as a "heated" debate and recent Board of Directors vote.

"It's a positive change for a positive future," he said. "It may be risky, but I think it's going to be better."

The issue came up at last week's meeting. Fellow director Ben Bousquet said the vote split 4-3, even though the majority of the post members do smoke.
