Commanders CommentsPosted on August 28, 2016
Comrades and Families,
I remember a story about someone else. When a group of people get together and decide to do something, the little details like who's getting the garbage bags or maybe some other little thing most people say, well someone else will do that. When things happen and everything goes as planned, who takes the trash out? Well someone else will do that. For over 100 years the VFW has been that someone else for many, many Veterans and their families. Maybe a VFW member has taken out the trash so as to assist a Veteran in need. Maybe a VFW member has remembered to bring something that would help an activity to help Veterans. As I spend time here in this office looking at paperwork and other office type stuff, I certainly notice when there has been someone else to do things. A golf tournament was organized, not an easy task. I didn't have the opportunity to be involved with planning or execution, someone else did. For all the things that get done by someone else, Thank You. Do you want to be that someone else?

Auxiliary President's Postings
Dear Auxiliary Member,
Auxiliary membership keeps climbing and we are very excited to have more and more male members. Thank you to our great members and thank you for helping out. Our organization is working on different ideas and projects in the upcoming months. As President of an organization of 500 plus members, it's hard to believe volunteers are hard to come by. We would deeply appreciate any help our members can give. There are funds that the Auxiliary sends to National. We can do any fundraising events to support our Auxiliary but we must have workers. Stressed in the meeting August 8th was to help each others' committees: Teresa Payne is over Veterans and Family Support (teaching public and helping families), Helen Heise is Chairwoman of the Membership Committee, if you can help her make phone calls or get updated numbers from members please see her about volunteering. If you want to help Glennetta Vogelsang with the Hospital Committee, please ask her how and when (Bingo always needs help), Americanism is Retha Popp (hand out flags to your community or show how the MIA table is done), Legislative is Debbie Griffin (keeping Vets to the front of every congressman's schedule) Scholarships is Dale Humphries (reminding each school of our scholarship programs), Youth Activities is Sheila Allen (teaching our youth about Veterans and more). All Chairpersons would love your help and input. Building a strong team makes a strong organization. September 11th volunteers are needed, as well as September 24th and 25th.
If you or someone you know are in need of medical equipment such as walkers, wheelchairs, canes, etc...the Post has equipment available to loan for no charge.
We have members who have volunteered to visit with members who are hospitalized. If you know of someone or you yourself are hospitalized please let us know.
