​Comrades given the fact that anniversary dates of many our annual members are in June.  I would like to offer an “Early Bird” discount of $5.00 to all annual members who prepay 45 days in advance here at the Post.  Cash, check, money order but paid direct to the post not mailed to National. Although we have achieved 100% membership for the last 3 years the end of the fiscal year has found us desperately calling members at the last minute for their dues and WE NEED THEM ALL!!

Your continued participation in our Canteen activities is greatly appreciated the funds generated there help us in efforts to serve our Veterans and our Community. At our last membership meeting members voted to assist the Camp Road Middle School Rugby Team with funds for equipment and travel expenses.  Tommy Duffy their Coach and Jim White School Resource Officer came by to thank us.

We would have the next to last of our “50th Commemoration of the Viet Nam War” ceremonies on March 28, 2020 if you served in that era this is for you.  We have a commitment to honor this event through 2020.  We will as always have a moving ceremony a lot of comradeship and some tasty eats.

The winner of Februarys’ drawing for a Life/Legacy membership at our Membership Meeting was #026, Irvine Borgen remember you must attend the meeting to be eligible.


God Bless America and the Veterans of Foreign Wars
