Commander's Report


     Can you believe that Spring is in the air?  Sometimes when we look out the window, it’s hard to conceive it to be true.  Although we’ve had some heavy lake effect storms, the overall winter has not been too severe.  It will sure be good to have the birds chirping and the grass growing again.  Not only is spring a time for change in the weather and everything coming alive, but it is also the start of Daylight Savings Time.  Remember to move your clocks forward on March 10th.

     March also brings on election season. Nomination sheets have been published on the bulletin board in preparation for the Post elections.  Election night at the Post will happen during our meeting on April 9th.  We had a really great team of officers over the course of the last year and many great things have been accomplished.  It has been an absolute honor to serve as your Commander for the past year and I thank each of you for your support.  Post members, Auxiliary members, Rider members as well as friends and family of the VFW.  Your support is important to our survival and I thank you for all you have done.

     Spring also brings a great time to get the yard cleaned up from the winter damage and plant the seeds that produce enjoyment all summer long. I really need your help at our annual spring clean-up which will be on Saturday, April 27th.  We will give the Post a spring face-lift and then enjoy some goodies from the grill for all who provide their support.

     Finally, we would like to honor our Veterans that are 75+ years young at our March monthly dinner.  I would invite you to come and have dinner on us as it is an absolute honor to have you in our ranks and pay gratitude for all your faithful years of service to our country.        


“Our flag does not fly because the wind moves it….it flies with the last breath of each combat veteran who died protecting it.”
