Roseville VFW Post 7555 holding annual fall fundraiser Sunday.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 7555 in Roseville will hold its 57th annual booya feed starting at 11 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 23.

Super Sunday weather aids Booya event.
The Roseville Fire Department Auxiliary held its Booya fundraiser Sunday at VFW Post 7555. The auxiliary's goal is to serve current and retired fire fighters when they are injured or ill, die, or to celebrate the birth of a child. The group takes donations so it can assist fire fighters and their familkies with medical costs, funeral costs, or baby gifts. The Fire Angels organization, which is comprised of female fire fighters and spouses of male fire fighters, held a games fundraiser in conjunction with the Booya. The Fire Angels give back to the community in many ways, including giving gifts to children during the holidays. The Minnesota Fire Service Memorial Pipe Band also played at this event.

Residents gather for fall Minnesota tradition; 150 gallons of stew made.
The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Post 7555 in Roseville on Sunday held their 56th annual Booya.

There were at least two to three guys here all through [Saturday] night.” Gary Siler, a Shoreview resident and Post 7555 member, was working the ticket line, and has for many years. He said booya proceeds go to…
