POST #9662
Post Commander's Comments
February – March, 2015
The good news is there are less than 60 days until the first
day of Spring! The bad news is we have 60 days of winter left! The
good news is that for warmth and fellowship, please come down to the
Post Home for a meal or to listen to the bands (see back page). If you
know of a veteran in need this winter, please let us know at the Post so
we can assist .
It is also that time of year where we need to contact our
annual members and remind them to renew for the next year.
Quartermaster Ron Koontz and his team have done a great job
contacting and reminding our members. Remember that your dues help
not only locally, but veterans around the country.
Stay Warm and See You at the Post!
