Commander's Message

  

     I heard the words “back to school” a few days ago, and can’t believe it is that time of year already.  Can’t say we are ready to say goodbye to summer.  But,  soon the daylight will become shorter as the beautiful autumn colors are upon us.  Please watch out for the children that are darting in and out as they board busses and head off to school each day. 

     I would like to give a huge thanks to all of those who supported our annual scholarship drive and golf tournament this year.  It was a huge success and a lot of fun for all who participated.  I would also like to thank Ken Erb and his kitchen crew for the really good meal that followed the tournament.  Ken’s green thumb and donation of his homegrown vegetables made for a true feast!!

     September and October are packed with fun events and we would love to see you there.  The legendary Bob Kissell will be back on September 9th and the 23rd.  October 1st is the Craft/Flea Market that will be in an Octoberfest Theme.  We hope to have some good German Beers on tap to go along with the Bratwurst we will be cooking on the grill.  We also have a special dinner on Monday, October 10th.  This will be our annual “Feed Our Vets Dinner”.  All proceeds will go to the Feed Our Vets pantry which is right here in Watertown NY.  Please come out and support these great events supporting a great cause.

     Thank you so much to all of you who volunteer and help make our Post the amazing organization that it is.  You are a huge part of why we are so successful.
