Comrades and Families,

At the time I am writing this, our Lake's caretaker is laid up in the hospital after suffering a stroke.  I can't tell you how much he has done for our Post and can't begin to thank him for all that he does and for the Radarish type deals he has made in favor of our Post.  My uncle recently passed away and it seems that more and more people around me are not as healthy as they could be.  I believe that my uncle's passing could have been averted if he had gone to a doctor.  I do hope that as you are reading this you consider how many people are affected by sickness and death.  I recently attended a suicide prevention fundraiser and was astonished with the number of teams for those that passed.  There were over four hundred people that were affected by just a handful of suicides.  Do your part and see a doctor if not feeling well and if someone is in need, help them.

Yours in Service,

Joe Wolsey, Commander Post #3838   

My Dearest Auxiliary Members,

Time is getting away from us and Post activities will be picking up.  October has Halloween events for kids on October 24th, Halloween Party October 31st, November 1st will be the Chichen 'n Dumpling Luncheon, November 8th the Antique & Collectable Show, November 11th Veterans' Day; Poppy Days the 13th and 14th of November....All if these events NEED YOUR HELP!  Volunteers are needed and committees formed so that these events can happen.  If you are interested in heading a committee please call or text me at 573-576-6317 or email me at  If you want to donate a food item to bring to the Chicken 'n Dumpling Dinner we could do the CAKE auction where the proceeds go to the Auxiliary.  If you like, you could help with the Halloween Party for kids at the Lakes on the 24th or if you have time, sit at the Antique & Collectable Show collecting at the door or helping at the Auxiliary table.  EVERYONE IS NEEDED.  It takes a team if friends and Vets to make these events work.  Another big event to get completed in October is if you are a continuous member and pay yearly, please turn in your 2016 dues.  It is so important to stay up on this in a timely manner so that you are always in good standing.  I appreciate each and every one of you and would love to meet with you.  Will be in the office every Monday evening at 6 p.m. 

Thank you for your support, Sandy Prichard, President
