I need to apologize to each of you for not keeping you updated on what is
going on in the Post. It has been a very busy time as usual.
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. 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 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. 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.
Wow has this year gone by fast it seems like we just finished with our Salvation
Army Kettle Campaign and here we are ready to start a new one. As I write this
we are getting ready to do our last Bingo for the year. We are the only game in
town now so our attendance has been good, we will have money to cover our
scholarships. The Iola Car Show and the Vintage Military with Old Working Wheels
were both successful this year, thanks to all that helped out. The 32 nd Brigade
Combat Team will be returning from Iraq early in 2010 we will need to make sure
that they are properly welcomed home.
I hope everyone has a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope everyone
can come to the Post and celebrate News Year with us, most of us are getting
older so I'm sure it won't be a real late night.
Just a reminder for all continuous members your 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!
