Comrades,
It is not to early to start thinking about VFW Post 7234 election of officers for next year. Every year The Post accepts nominations for Post positions at the March meeting with votes being cast at the April meeting. The newly elected officers are then sworn in at the Post at the May meeting. The Commander is sworn at the annual DE VFW State Convention in late June. At that time, the Commander and Post officers assume their duties and responsibilities.

Our Post elects the following officers for a 1-year term.
Commander
Sr. Vice Commander
Jr. Vice Commander
Quartermaster
Chaplain
Trustee (*elected to a 3-year term)

The elected Commander appoints the following officers to a 1-year term.
Adjutant
Judge Advocate
Veteran Service Officer
Surgeon
Officer of the Day
Sergeant at Arms
Honor Guard Captain

The duties and responsibilities of each officer may be found in the VFW Congressional Charter Bylaws and Manual of Procedural Ritual.
At the April meeting we will accept nominations for the Board of Directors. At least 2 positions will be available next year.Election for Board of Director members will be conducted at the May meeting.
Please give careful thought and consider running for office or seeking an appointed position. Leadership and especially NEW leadership are important to the viability and well-being of our Post.
You may ask me or any Post officer or Board member about the position(s), duties and responsibilities.
Thank you for your consideration.
John

KEY CARD APPLICATIONS - IMPORTANT NOTICE:

Effective, Thursday, December 15, key card applications will be available once again. You will find key card applications at the membership application station of the Post. You must be a member of VFW Post No. 7234 to apply for the card. Proof of membership will be required to apply.

Key cards will cost $15 beginning on that date. The fee is a one-time charge. Also beginning on that date, the cards may be picked up at the Post only. There will be no further mailing of the key cards.

For those who applied in late July and during August and September, there are few of you, your cards have been issued and should be at the bar, if that is the method of delivery you chose. Those who requested the card be mailed should be receiving their cards this week. They were mailed today. The $10 fee will still apply to any key card application received by the Post prior to this writing.

Thank you for being patient. Hard to imagine that even Post security has been affected by the supply chain problems.

Enjoy your visits to the Post and always remember it is a volunteer organization.

Respectfully,
The Officers and Board Directors of the Post

IMPORTANT NOTICE - FOR MASON DIXON MEMBERS ONLY

November 28,2022

Dear Mason Dixon Members:

Effective immediately, contrary to other notes you may have received, the bar tenders will distribute your paid-for membership cards.
This practice will make more hours available for pick up and will continue until further notice.

Please be courteous to the bar tenders. Please thank them for taking on this added task.

The only times MD membership cards will not be distributed are during the busy times on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Saturdays evenings and nights. So, if you plan to pick up your card on one of these days, please do so before 4:45 or after 8:30 or 9:00 PM. In other words, please don’t be asking for your card if you see the bar tenders are busy with paying customers. This is just common courtesy, please practice it generously.

If you have any questions or concerns, please write them down and place the note in the Quartermaster box at the Application Center immediately inside the secure doors. The QM will respond to your note in a reasonable amount of time.

Thank you once again for choosing to be members of our Post. Have a very happy holiday season!
