July went by so quickly and was such a very busy month with Officer training and National Convention. The Fourth of July weekend was an awesome success and I would like to thank everyone that helped cooked the pig, and those that helped to set up and clean up. It’s volunteers like you that make everything flow so much easier.
Thanks everyone who helped in the overwhelming heat to lay the bricks in the memorial brick. You all did a great job and everyone is proud to see the names of loved ones memorialized on the bricks. This was a great idea and awesome success, thank you all again.
I would like to thank post and auxiliary members and their friends and families for their volunteer efforts at our post.
As you may have seen the flyer, we started a fundraiser, “purchase a drink for the post for $2”. We’re trying to raise funds to fix some facility issues in the post. So if you can, I’d greatly appreciate your help by purchasing a drink for the post on occasion when you’re at the bar buying one for yourself.
The District Meeting will be in Lewisville on the 28th. This meeting is for VFW Post members only as the Auxiliary District Meeting will be held separately this month on the 20th in Bonham. We also have a program, Operation Iraqi Freedom, to recognize on the 31st.
Also on the calendar you’ll see we have two awesome bands this month, TX BleuCatz and the Bullwinkles, plus a movie night. Come out and support your post by attending these events… the camaraderie is great and we always have a good time together.
On behalf of the VFW, heartfelt condolences go out to the Keeter family. Ed was a great man with a giving heart who will truly be missed by all.
Thank you for your continued support.
