Commander’s Comments

As we look back on 2016 what a wonderful year it has been thanks to the men and women that have served and volunteered for the VFW to keep the organization going.
As we move forward into 2017, each and everyone of you has set some high standards for the post. We have one of the finest posts in the district and in the state of Texas. With everyone working together we don’t expect any less. Give yourself a pat on the back!

Thanks everyone for your donations, it’s greatly appreciated and helps keep us going.

For the New Year’s eve party at the post we have the BluRock Band. Tickets will be on sale on Sat, Dec 3rd. Reserve your table or your seat now, $15 per person in advance or $20 at the door. Last year we sold out quick. Party favors, champagne and black eyed peas and corn bread at midnight are included.

Chaplain’s Comments


Remember a quote from Darrell Royal for this time of the year “we need to dance with the one who brung us”. Remember our Lord and Savior and creator I AM, and give thanks for all HE has done for you and the great gift HE gave you—Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

God blesses everyone…..may He bless you more. Should you need me, I can be reached at 903-814-8058.

Auxiliary President’s Comments

Thanks everyone who attended our auxiliary meeting. Sadly we had to drape the Charter for our auxiliary sister Marlene Parnell.

Don’t forget to make your cookies for the Bonham VA Christmas Party.  We’ll be bagging the cookies on Thu, Dec 8th at 2pm. Be sure to have your cookies at the post prior to that time. We’d greatly appreciate help to bag the cookies.

Congratulations to Sylvia Ross for winning the Life Membership.  We’ll be having a drawing for a life membership for the VFW National Home for Children at our December meeting.  To be eligible for this drawing you’ll need to come to the meeting.

We passed a motion to donate to the Hero Walk at the Midwinter Convention in January.  If you plan on attending Midwinter in Austin, Jan 26-29, and plan to attend the luncheon for $30, please have your money to me by Dec 18th.

I need everyone’s help with a petition letter regarding Roger Goodell and one to the NFL Players Association on how we feel about our American Flag. More details and instructions will follow on this subject in the near future.

We still have our Toys for Tots box out so please donate a toy if you can.

We will be having a Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day on December 7th at 5:45pm. Please come and show your support.

Barbara Jackson will start taking orders for bricks for the Memorial Park at our next meeting on Dec 17th.

Please pay your membership by Dec 31st so our auxiliary can make 100% over last year’s membership.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you. Thanks everyone for your generous donations and all of your hard work over the past year.
