Man, it is September already? The older I get the faster time goes by! It has been a good summer at the post. We had the range rented for the weekend five different times this year. Volunteers have been BBQing on the range for about all the events and the canteen and auxiliary have provided meals as well. Getting help from the membership is sometimes challenging but we survive. If anyone is interested in helping please notify me or someone working at one of the dinners. Your help will be greatly appreciated.
I would really like to thank the Auxiliary for contributing money from their account to help pay some of the VFW’s bills. Things are real tight right now and their contribution is a Godsend! Thank you to all members. The Auxiliary does a lot of great things for the Post and their volunteer help is very appreciated.
Please DO NOT DUMP furniture or other debris on range by the stage. We’ve cleaned the area up and removed what we couldn’t burn. Any unauthorized people dumping will be prosecuted when caught. Thank you.
To those that are ill we wish you a speedy recovery. To those that have lost a loved one our deepest sympathy.
...."Those who have served under fire, have experiences something that only a small percentage of our brothers and sisters have experienced. For most that experience will draw the best from the individual and the memories of such
experiences will remain a major part of one's life until the end of days. Life will always present those 'under fire' experiences, be they in live combat or just in the everyday tough times, but everyone is wired to use those experiences for making things better in the long run. The ones who have endured the 'live fire' or the 'tough times' are in a better position to aid others in meeting their own difficulties. May we continue developing our own unique experiences for helping others during this most difficult age".
