RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota Veterans of Foreign Wars officials have taken over management of the Rapid City post after a dispute over selling the club.

The five board members of Post 1273 resigned earlier this week after club members voted against a motion to sell the building, which has a bar and restaurant.

Board member Doug Stulken tells KOTA-TV he resigned because the VFW is going bankrupt and it’s too hard to manage.

Rick Barg, state adjutant and quartermaster for the VFW, tells KNBN-TV that the post has been placed under suspension in order to keep it open.

Barg says a few holiday functions will be held as scheduled in the next couple of weeks.
