Blackburn Aurora VFW Post 3348 meets on the 3rd Tuesday of each month @ (6:30 pm) at the Acacia Memorial Park at 14951 Bothell Way NE, Shoreline, WA. We serve dinner (no charge) to our members before we hold our regular meeting.
The first Post Commander for Blackburn VFW Post 3348 was Frank Christiansen in 1934. The members of VFW Post 3348 built Blackburn Hall near the corner of NE 125th St & 15th Ave NE in Seattle. In 1972, Aurora VFW Post 2287 merged with us.
In 2000, our former Quartermaster sold two adjacent 1/2 acres we owned (which included Blackburn Hall) for $1.2 million. He did not get approval of from our members, may have kept tens of thousands for himself and gave the remaining funds to a Foundation. He and his two personal attorneys set up this Foundation, refused to tell us how much he gave to the Foundation initially, and then they made themselves 3 of the 5 Board members. In addition it appears he also allegedly paid hush money to a few members.
