Happy New Year!!! As we welcome in 2023, we fondly look back on all the good times and comradeship of the past year. I hope everyone had a safe and joyous Holiday Season and was able to spend it with those you care about most.
Thank you so much to the host of volunteers for making our Veterans Day ceremony such a huge success. It is always so heart-warming to see so many come out to honor our Veterans on such an important day. Also a big thank you to the Auxiliary and the many volunteers who made the Children’s Christmas Party so much fun! The kids had a great time with the games, food and special visit from Santa who handed out terrific gifts. The Army-Navy game was a good time as usual. Now that was a “barn-burner” right to the very end. It’s always nice to see the good guys come out on top!!
Once again, we have a very busy couple of months in front of us. We have both our Super Bowl Party and our Daytona 500 Party in the month of February. Please come and enjoy a great time. And please don’t forget the monthly dinners. There is always plenty of awesome food and at such a great price! Please check the calendar and don’t miss a single event. I look forward to seeing you there.
I also hope to see some more of our membership at upcoming meetings. Our membership and its great ideas are what make our Post so great. Please, let’s not let that falter. I really look forward to hearing your ideas and implementing them as we go forward.
Finally, I would like to wish you and your loved ones a very happy and healthy New Year. Please keep our troops and their families in your thoughts and prayers.
