First let me introduce myself to all of our new members. I'm Dick Morey, Commander
of Waupaca Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1037.
To all members please come and be an active part of this great veterans service
We haven't had a Newsletter for a while and we really need to get the information
out to our members. I mentioned this at our Veterans Day chili feed and our
Quartermaster Bill Flemal volunteered his wife Kathy to help us a BIG THANK
YOU!. For those of you with internet access check out our website at
www.waupacavfw.org. We will try to keep you
informed of the activities of the post and I hope that if you can help out in any way
please join us. If you have any questions or need any type of information please
contact me at 715-258-7257, E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
cell phone 715-281-7258.
Up Coming Events:
Feb. 4 th we will host a party for the members at the King Veterans
Home starting at 1:00PM at the Marden Center . Feb. 25 th the Ladies Auxiliary will hold a
60th Anniversary Dinner at the Post starting at 12:00 noon . $7.50 per person, get
reservations in to Teresa Mangert 258-7004. Please come and bring a guest. Our BINGO will
stat again the 3rd Thursday of March at 7:00 PM come out and help or play. The money from
this goes to our Scholarship Fund.
For those of you that have been members for a while know that The VFW Department of Wisconsin
holds a raffle each year, other years they mailed out tickets to each member for them to buy
or sell. This year they are having a limited raffle with only 40,000 tickets printed they are
$10.00 each but the odds of winning are better than most raffles. The money from this raffle
goes to our Veterans Service Office I will try in future newsletters to explain the importance
of this Office to all VFW members and their families. Both myself and the Quartermaster have
tickets that you can buy or better yet pickup and sell. The Post gets to keep 20% of each ticket
That's all for now!
