News Letter & Information

 

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I hope everyone had a pleasant Christmas and was able to enjoy time with family and friends.  The new year is fast approaching, and there are plenty of opportunities and events planned in 2022.  Happy New Year to you and your families as we soon begin a new year at the Post.
 
I want to thank everyone who had a part in the success of our Post last year recovering from a total shutdown caused by the COVID Pandemic.  We were still able to host monthly cruise-ins, restart Bingo, open the canteen on a regular basis, resume in-person monthly meetings, celebrate our 75th Anniversary, host a fall festival and a children's Christmas Party, and our 1st Annual Motorcycle Show.  None of those events or others could have been accomplished without the help of dedicated members such as yourselves.  Thank you.
 
With renewed dedication and participation in mind, please consider the following:
