MARCH 2013

Hello Comrades,

On Friday, March 1st 2013, we lost Michael Tunis. He was truly an asset to this post. Mr. Tunis wore many hats here. We will all miss him.

We have started the year off to a great start.  Our annual banquet was wonderful.  Thanks to Andrew Rickard, Officer of the Day, for making the night special for all.  This year's Commander's Award went to the Ladies' Auxilary and to their President Raellen Hoblet.  Like I said at the banquet you Ladies mean the world to me.  You have all worked so hard to make the Ladies Auxilary a success. I'm so proud of you all.

I'm so excited about the web site being up and running.  Again, Andrew Rickard and Amy Miller have done such a great job on the design of the web site.  Please browse around the web site.  Soon we will be up loading photos of our members and events. Please like the Post on Facebook as well.

We are starting the election process for our officers. During March and April meetings we will have open nominations. May we will hold elections and Install the new officers in June. Nominations and elections are open to any paid up regular member of the Post. Please join us so that we can have the voice of the membership speak.

As always, all meetings are open, to all regular members of the post. If you want to know what is going on at your post, and have a voice in those activities, come to the meetings.

We have a lot of fun stuff coming up at the Post.  Please plan on attending some of the events. If you have any suggestions to make the Post even better, get with me.

See ya soon.
