I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the individuals that helped out with our Annual Picnic. It was a huge success! For those that were not able to attend, you missed a great time. This year we had over thirty children attend. The Junior Girls from 1031 assisted us with games and I would like to thank them for their assistance. Please take a look at our upcoming events and mark your calendar.
Our Post is continuing to move along. Recently we added the patio on the back and continue to look at ways that we may improve our Post. If you have an idea or an opportunity to volunteer any time what so ever, please call and leave your name so we may contact you in the future.
VFW Year starts July 1st 2004. If you haven’t paid your dues, now is the time to renew for the coming year. Since last year our roster has increased, We still need to look for new members. Please check within your own family or with friends that might have family members eligible to join. Let’s bring them in & promote the VFW.
“Last But Not Least,” VFW is a Veterans Organization. Let’s look beyond our own beliefs and support the VFW cause. Part of that is through your participation, we need everyone’s participation to help us out. We have really accomplished so much in a short time frame, but let’s continue to build on what we have accomplished!
