Beat the VFW dues increase - Dec 1, 2013
We ask all VFW annual members to please help your Post by paying dues by Dec. 1 and we can get the special disignation of Honor Post. And know that there is a dues increase coming after December 31. So paying in time for us to get it to National by the end of the month will avoid this increase.

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.
