Commanders CommentsPosted on June 30, 2016
Comrades and Families,
I'd like to say thank you to all those who work for the VFW. You may or may not know some of these people but I believe that they go above and beyond their job description. Mike at the lakes has gotten thousands of dollars worth of material donated, Gary here at the Post at night not only cleans floors but changes light bulbs anf cleans gutters. David, the new cook, has worked a new menu and added some things of his recipes. Our Bartenders know their customers and do other duties...All of these efforts make this Post better for all. If you see any of these people, tell them thanks.
Yours in service,
Joe Wolsey, Commander Post #3838
Auxiliary President's Postings
Dear Auxiliary Members,
Happy Independence Day! Great time to reflect on what all our veterans have done for us, and the current service men and women serving to protect our freedoms today. With the new year ahead lots of planning and ideas going around. Stressed in the last meeting was the need of our 509 members to participate more, keep records of events that they have done, and make sure all year end reports are complete and turned in on time. Best way to do this is to have a copy of the year end report on hand and review monthly what is asked of us. The items listed is to help the Veterans we love and support. The programs that are done in our Auxiliary is to be helpful in the community to educate the public of what the VFW and Auxiliary mean, and that we are here for our Veterans and families. Over 100 years the Auxiliary has supported the Post and the veterans of foreign wars, now let's support our own Auxiliary with volunteering and participating in the committees we have. Can you help with phone calls, letter writing, handing out flags, Post events, or help at Bingo?
I need updated phone numbers since most members went to cellphone numbers and not home numbers, or email addresses. Please text or email me with your name and numbers. All your help is greatly appreciated and very much needed. email@example.com I am available for you every Monday night from 6pm to 8pm at the Auxiliary office at the Post, but you can communicate with me any time.
Sandy Prichard, Auxiliary President
