Commander’s Comments

As you read this newsletter, plans are in the “make ready” stage for the work details to be accomplished on Sat, Oct 3rd and Sat, Oct 10th.  It’s going to take a lot of manpower to complete the refurbishment of the deck, campground and other areas around the post.  Please volunteer some of your time to assist in this effort.  At our Sep meeting we discussed the water system.  A program will be presented to lot lease residents to inform them of the options we have concerning the water system at 9am on Sat, Oct 10th.  I realize there is a lot going on that day, but it’s the most opportune time to present the information to residents prior to our voting on the water system at our October meeting.  It is vitally important that everyone know and understand the avenues of approach that we will take in upgrading the water system.

Be good, be careful, and especially, be proud of your post.

Chaplain’s Comments


Surely this man wasn’t military…..  Three guys are fishing when an Angel appears.  The first guy says, “I’ve suffered from back pain for years.  Can you help me?” The Angel touches the man’s back and he feels instant relief.  The second guy points to his thick glasses and begs for a cure.  When the angel tosses his lenses into the lake, the man gained 20/20 vision.  As the Angel turns to the third guy, he instantly recoils and screams, “Don’t touch me! I’m on disability!”

God blesses everyone…..may He bless you more.  Should you need to reach me my phone no. is 903-814-8058.

Auxiliary President’s Comments

Thanks everyone who attended our September meeting.  Our Dist 1 President Rose Mary Wells and last year’s Dist 1 President Vicky Dickerson were in attendance.  Thanks to all for making them feel welcome.  Our annual audit by Rose Mary went very well.

We welcome all of the new male members to the newly formed VFW Auxiliary.

Thank you Debra Crouch, Serene Halley and Priscilla McMurry for visiting the Pottsboro Schools and handing out patriotic material.  Thanks everyone who worked so hard on the Labor of Love, it was a great success.  Thank you Priscilla McMurry for your hard work on all the programs in September.

We need side dishes on Oct 3rd to go with chicken wings for 30 volunteer workers from Lowe’s and the post who will be on site to work on the deck from 10am-2pm.  We also need help again on Oct 10th, same time 10am-2pm, to cut up items to go with hamburgers and hotdogs for the same volunteer group on site again to work on the campground and other outside areas.  Please let me know if you can assist with a dish and setup of food on these next two working Saturdays.

Thanks everyone for what you do and don’t let us forget what we are here for.

Several MAUX members were recently accepted into the new  VFW Auxiliary and they look forward to enhancing each other’s capacity to support the Post. On Oct 3rd and 10th, the MAUX will conduct work projects that will be benefit the Post with the help of MAUX, LAUX and Lowe’s Volunteers. Interested members should contact Jose prior to those dates so we can assign you to the projects. This project is funded by Lowes, MAUX and the shared portion of the LOL funds that were raised recently to complete these projects. Projects completed thus far were the restriping of the parking lot, lighting of the parking lot, purchase of lights and a new commercial weed wacker. Projects that will take place during Oct 3rd and 10th include the pressure washing and restaining of the deck, 6 new picnic tables, 2 outdoor patio fans, fixing the flower beds, renovations of the camp grounds, 2 help-a-vet projects and others to be determined.  All above projects will be determined by volunteer assistance and funding.  MAUX members that need new auxiliary applications, please contact Jose for assistance.  Thank you for your support.
