Greetings everyone!! Once again, we
come upon our summer season, a time to
enjoy the outdoors and vacationing with
family and friends.
Things at your VFW are going fine, our
membership keeps gaining. Our activities
seem to be keeping the interest of people
and we will increase our plans for fall of
Now I would like to address the Open
House Mondays we had in June. We
thought we had a pretty good plan,
however, the great acceptance of Chef Pete
Locante was somewhat overwhelming.
We were not able to give everyone what
they wanted and for that I apologize. If we
donít occasionally try something new, we
will wind up in a rut. The next time we
come up with new promotions I assure you
we will do a better job handling it for our
customers and guests.
This summer, we are going to form a Corn
Hole League. We are looking to have a
tournament during our post picnic. Come
out and test your ability. Also have fun
with friends and family.
July 4th will be a big day for Doug and
Alexis Vitale. They will be presented their
new home. This is also a special time for
our entire community and especially our
Post. We all helped make this effort count.
Thanks again to everyone for everything
that was done for this accomplishment.
On 9 Aug, the Central Blood Bank will be
having a blood drive at our Post in the
WWII room. This will be known as
Operation Gratitude and donors will be
able to send thank you notes to current
service members. Registration will be
posted in advance of the date.
Thank you for taking the time to read my comments and always
remember, you can use the post suggestion box if you have something
