As usual it is way past time to update our Post Blog. I learned at our last Post
meeting that there are people looking at our Post website and we need to keep it
updated and useful. 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.
