From the Desk of the Commander:
I would like to congratulate Antoinette Kettner, Post 315 Service Officer, for her appearance on the front page of the American Legion Auxiliary Magazine. She has worked tirelessly to support her husband, Jason, as a Veteran Caregiver. If you would like to read about her story and that of her husbands, please press the button below to read the magazine article. Very informative and educational on the life of a Veteran Caregiver and the hurdles they encounter on their journey.
The Auxiliary will be conducting their Cash Bash on Saturday, 14 May to fund raise for their various causes. Please help out the Auxiliary and attend. Hit the button below to access their flyer.
Volunteerism is the key to service organization success. I have over 1300 members in the Post but I always see the same volunteers. I know most of you joined to support Veterans or to honor a Veteran and volunteering is a great way of doing both. Please help. To the right (laptops) or below (cell phone) is a list of volunteer opprotunities. All you have to do is call or text the Point of Contact (POC) and they will set you up. Again, please help to make your Post better.
I encourage that everyone pays their dues as soon as possible. The Bartenders will be checking everyone's Card when they come in even if you are a regular to ensure you have paid. Please cooperate with them as this is the only way to ensure we do not violate our liquor license. If you have some issue with that, come see me or your respective Commander or President.
