I want to say Thank You to all those that took the time to help us with our
projects this year, without you we could not do the things we do. As the Vietnam
Vets reach retirement age, I hope we can get more of these people involved and get
more info out to you. Just a little reminder we meet the first Monday of each month
at 7:00 PM at the Post Home at 244 Industrial Dr. We have a meal between 5:30 and
6:00 PM the post supplies the meat and members bring a dish to pass. I would like
to welcome all of our new members. We hope that we can work together to assist each
other in any way we can for the benefit of all Veterans. If you have any questions
or need assistance you can contact me at 715-258-7257, 715-281-7258, or
firstname.lastname@example.org. Put something about VFW or Veterans in the subject box.
To up grade our Blog for the summer and for the rest of the year I am going to have
the web-master put up a list of things by the month that we do every year, I hope
the dates are correct if not we can adjust them as we go. If you can help us out with
any of them please let us know we would be glad to have you join us.
To our new members, our younger members and those that may be interested in joining us.
One of the things that I have learned by going to many of the different VFW functions
is that we as posts need to change how we operate if we want to get the younger vets
involved. There is a great age difference between us and many of the new people, so also
is the gape in things we like to do. We need input from you on what changes you would
like, and how we can better serve you. I believe that we need you and you need us to
continue the work of this great organization. With the tough economic times we need to
work together to keep the benefits we already have, and to make sure our active duty
troops are taken care of the way they should be.
Just a reminder for all continuous members you dues are due now $24.00. If anyone is
having trouble affording this let us know we can help out.
That's all for now!
