To our Members and their Guests,

The Board met yesterday on line and made the following decisions:

1. In order to preserve our financial resources, after last night’s cheese steaks the kitchen was closed with NO carryout available until further notice.

2. In order to help our staff through this emergency financially while our Post is closed, a compensation plan will be put in place through the week ending 4/26/20

3. Only Board meetings by email. The officers will continually evaulate the situation and will continue to manage the Post although closed. We will advise you of any changes.

4. Post Meetings and Elections - we are waiting for guidance on how to proceed.

Please stay well and look out for you neighbors.

PLEASE CONTINUE TO LOOK AT WEBSITE AND EMAILS FOR CONSTANT UPDATES. AND CONTACT US WITH ANY QUESTIONS.

IN MEMORY


Honor is due to those who served our country and paid the ultimate price.
To honor them, to respect them, to remember them, to touch them,
to feel their presence, to reflect, to cry, and to mourn
..... this is why Americans visit "The Wall"
....John Gossart, Judge Advocate

BLUE STAR SERVICE FLAG

A service flag or service banner is a banner that family members
of those serving in the United States Armed Forces can display.
The flag or banner is officially defined as a white field with a red border, with a blue star
for each family member serving in the Armed Forces of the United States
during any period of war or hostilities.

Our Jr Vice Commander, Rich Fales has purchased several of these flags to give to families
in our local area with a family member serving our country in the Armed Forces.
Please go to "Contact Us" and provide us with your contact information so we can provide your family a flag or stop by the Post.
Also if you know of a family with a member in the Armed Services, let us know.
