Commander’s Column


September 2016

Hello Comrades,

Well, summer is coming to an end and I would like to thank each and every one of you that has come down and supported Our Post! Without you we are nothing!

A big shout out to Daniel, who has made a generous donation for our future patio.

On a sad note, we lost Ed Caldwell, one of life members and Robert Curry, an Auxiliary member. They will be missed greatly.

Please read the on line calendar of upcoming events and keep coming down to support those who are cooking and making a difference.
