SAY GOODBYE TO MONTHLY BAR TABS! Effective October 1, 2015

Effective October 1, 2015, the Gerry 5 VFA will no longer provide the monthly bar tab option to members.  We offer alternative methods of payment - credit cards and Gerry gift cards (and of course cash or personal check).
WE ARE SERIOUS! Beginning October 1, all patrons must pay at the time of service. Day tabs will still be available but MUST be collected by the bartender when the member departs. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding!
