Post meeting date change - Sunday, Sept 14, 2014
Our Post is considering changing the meeting night so that some of our older members who do not drive at night can attend. Since so many of our members work, we will try a Sunday afternoon meeting during the month of September. The meeting will be at 2:00 PM so as not to interfere with church schedules. We will not make any permanent change until we see how this is accepted.
Colleting items for the homeless - now through Oct 1, 2014
Our Ladies Auxiliary is collecting items for the homeless that will help them get through the winter months. There will be a box at the Post to collect things like gloves, blankets, warm new socks, scarves, hats, and even some food items like beef jerky. These items will be bagged up and brought to the October Council meeting.

Yard Sale - To be determined
The Ladies Auxiliary will be running a yard sale to benefit the Building Fund. So check your closets and drawers for those items you no longer need, and donate them to a worthy cause. There will be all sorts of trash and tresure there. Watch this site for the date.
Thanks to our many volunteers - Ongoing
Each month, many of our members work at the Post and in the community to support our veterans. To thank them all in each edition of the Post Newsletter, takes a lot of room - due to the number of people to thank. So we are now listing them here, with a big Thank You, so we don't miss anyone. Check out who we thanked this month.
