Comrades & Sisters:

I am looking forward to working with every one of you, VFW members, Men’s Auxiliary and Women’s Auxiliary in the coming year. We have a great group of officers for the coming year so I’m excited to have such good help.

We are going to have to raise more money for the roof fund, so we will be having several fund raisers. It would be nice if a few more members would volunteer a little time to help us out with our projects at the Post. Please come out and give us a hand, this is your Post too.

I can’t thank Denny Nester enough for stepping up and taking the Commander’s post. He worked hard and put a lot of time at the Post. He deserves a big thankyou from all of us.

There will be a ceremony at the East Noble High School called “Stand Up For Freedom” at 6:00pm on July 3rd. Please plan to attend this for our veterans.

Brian DeCamp with Northern Indiana Funeral Care will be at our Post on July 5th at 6:00pm to tell us about our veterans’ discount in planning our funerals. It also gives a discount for our wives and children at the same price. It really sounds good so please plan on being there. We will have a Post meeting at 7:00pm.

If you have an email address, please send it to us along with your name and current home address, so we can send our newsletter and any other updates we have. The Post email is [email protected] This will save the Post a lot of money.

We owe American Legion Post #86 an apology for saying they took our Poppy weekend in May. We were the ones who didn’t get the stores and time lined up for the dates we wanted. We don’t want any bad feelings between our Posts. So again, we apologize for any misunderstanding.

God Bless America!
