Comrades and Families,

I can't begin to tell you how busy these last few weeks have been.  Plans are being made for our Post picnic on Sept. 24 at the lakes, website updates are coming, we have a college student working to bring our Post website to a higher level of usage by everyone.  A golf tournament is being planned for Aug. 12. with proceeds going to the Avenue of Flags.  The house committee is working on updating the Canteen with a new Point of Sale computer register.  I think I've spent 4 or 5 nights a week either at a meeting or poking on that computer in the office.  Community service reports are just buzzing with information that we have accomplished.  Busy, Busy, Busy.  Volunteers are always needed and if you don't know what to do just ask, I've got some small projects that need just a few hours to accomplish.  If you want we also have a 1500 gal. grease trap that needs cleaning but I'm not sure how many will jump for that one.  Our life member board does need some updating, it's a small project, just needs a little attention.  The Avenue of Flags could always use help.  Our Junior Vice is facilitating an easy way to report a community service that you have done.  As you can see plenty of things to do.  The more Veterans that can help Veterans, the more Veterans we can help.

Yours in service,

Joe Wolsey, Commander Post #3838   

Dear Auxiliary Member,

Here are some of the items from last meeting July 11th, 16 members present, our auxiliary is selling Bee pins which were purchased during School of Instructions, the pins were designed by new Department President Hazel Linnenberger.  Each pin is $3.00.  We also discussed the Suicide Prevention Walk in September, Buddy Poppies in November, Chicken and Dumpling Day, November 6th, Collectible Show in November, and we are also reminding everyone to pitch in during that busy weekend in November.  Each committee was present except for Legislative however want to remind everyone to VOTE.  Also was discussed and really want feedback on is Auxiliary dinners every three months, this was told to us by Glennetta Vogelsang that before everyone would bring a covered dish and we discussed events (not a formal meeting).  I would love to have "social time" with everyone and get to know the 517 members of our Auxiliary.  Please call or message me on this idea.  573-576-6317 or  As we have done every year bikes will be given away at the Cape Public Library on August 2nd so be sure and watch paper for the Commander and myself.  We love this reading project that we donate to yearly.  Tickets will going on sale for Chicken and Dumpling dinner so stay in touch. 

Yours truly and God Bless,

Sandy Prichard, Auxiliary President
