Companies make smoother ride for VFW patrons

In News by Reporter News

Two area businesses joined forces last week to complete what would have been a daunting task at the Pearland VFW.

Driveway and parking lot repairs at the W. Walnut VFW Hall began at 7 a.m. sharp Thursday, with the permitting process completed with the assistance of Pearland local and Brazoria County Commissioner Stacy Adams. On the site at 4202 Walnut St. were crews from Deer Park-based DaMar Construction and Baytown-based Tandem Lamarr Trucking and Excavating Inc.

The two companies donated all services and materials for resurfacing of the VFW’s parking lot, something that had been needed for many years.

Tom Youngblood of the Disabled American Veterans Gulf Coast Chapter initially reached out to DaMar owner Mark Rogers, explaining they simply didn’t have the kinds of funds needed to make the sorely needed repairs. The company had been a supporter of the chapter through past projects.

The company was not only thrilled to help, but brought in a partner. DaMar had recently begun working with freight shipping and transport company Tandem Lamarr, and asked if they wanted in on the project.

“They were beyond eager to help us and the DAV,” DaMar spokeswoman Carmen Sawyer said.

The VFW Post is open seven days a week with Bingo on Sundays beginning at 4 p.m. Visit for more information.
