Comrades, Auxiliary and Supporters
We are essentially finished with the storm damage repairs in the Post. Without your support and donations this could have been disastrous for our continued support of our Veterans and community projects.
Given the magnitude of the support we have received from sources outside our post family I need to extend our heartfelt thanks to those who have participated on our “Go Fund Me” page, the many Veterans of Foreign Wars Posts and Auxiliaries, the American Legion and Auxiliary not only in our Department but as far away as Missouri, we have also received Grants from our National and Department Headquarters and the Town Of James Island.
I have tried to acknowledge all of our donors personally but if I have missed you please know that your donations have allowed us to continue to serve our Veterans, our Community and the Veterans of Foreign Wars.
We have postponed our reopening dinner until early January 2020 in view of the upcoming Holidays. We will continue the operation of our Canteen and scheduled events as always.
I’m back to preaching about Membership I hope when you read this Newsletter it reminds you that we belong to a pretty dammed elite Group of Veterans and your membership is important to our continued success.
We recently attended Boy Scout Troop 44’s meeting and presented Citizenship and Education Awards to 17 Members of the Troop who helped place flags on Veteran’s graves in cemeteries across James Island.
The winner of this months Life/Legacy award was Ben Tieman #267 and Ben was present at our meeting of November 12, 2019. Remember you must attend Post meetings to win.
God Bless America and the Veterans of Foreign Wars
