Officer Elections

At the meeting of 8 April 2010, the Post elected officers for the 2010-2011 year, which starts 1 July 2010, are identical to those currently elected for the 2009-2010 year. We are looking for comrades to lead some of the invididual programs that is the main purpose of the Veterans of Foreign Wars. It only takes a few hours each month. Many of us enjoy the facilities and the related recreation it has to offer, but, frankly, the mission of the VFW is not the canteen; rather, it is with the various programs that benefit our veterans and families. Support YOUR Post by volunteering for a leadership position. We will train. It takes only a few hours per month. Call me or one of the Post officers for further information.
