February 2016 Newsletter

  Commanders Comments    Posted on February 04, 2015

Comrades and Families,

Calling all volunteers, members of our entertainment committee have been working hard to find and book some big activities here at the Post and at the lakes.  There are a bunch of things that we can do but we need our members to help with staffing these events.  The outlook of things is getting this Post back into the limelight and back into our community.  When you have an opportunity to help with any or all of these events let someone know and you will help this place succeed.

After discussion at the regular Post meeting it was decided to significantly decrease publishing of this newsletter.  We are asking that members seek this publication in the form of email or look to social media for updates and information.  However we recognize that some still enjoy getting a printed newsletter.  If we do not get notification of your wish to continue receiving a printed copy, one will not be sent.  There will be several copies printed and put in the Post canteen for you.

Yours in Service,

Joe Wolsey, Commander Post #3838   

Dear Auxiliary Members,

January has rushed through and we had a great ceremony for Patriots Pen and Voice of Democracy; which then carried through the following Sunday with the District 15 meeting celebrating the District winners.  Hopefully one of District 15 winners will go to Department then National.  Great speeches.  We do not want to forget about the Art contest coming up for high school students.  February marks "the big game" on the 7th, which will be fun and the 13th will be the Valentine dinner and band.  Many members still do not realize that the Post and Auxiliary meet the SECOND MONDAY of each month, meal at 6 and separate meetings at 7.  Also on the other Mondays of the month the Commander and I are in our offices for YOU, OUR MEMBERS to approach us about any of your concerns, suggestions or ideas.  I also want to bring up unpaid dues, if for any reason you need help with paying the dues, please call me, we will figure it out and keep you a member.  There is always a way to help you, just need to know you need your fellow sisters help.  Again please reach out to me at 573-576-6317 or .

God Bless To All, Sandy Prichard, President
