From the Commander:

 

Greetings Comrades!

Well, we are over the hump and coming back strong. Bingo is going well and we should have the canteen open soon. We are still looking for people who want to rent the bingo hall and we will be hosting several VFW related meetings. Also, there are several more Grants and extremely low interest loans available for us. There is only one main hurtle left to us before we can make our big come back.

††††††††††††††† For want of a Quartermaster, we lost the post. Thatís it folks, we need someone to step up and save the post. The job isnít as bad as most people make it out to be. Dale Huft has set the bar very high. The position is really just writing checks to pay the bills. You come by the post and check the mail, then write the checks. You get to handle the vast amounts of bar revenue. Thatís all folks! If we donít find a Quartermaster, June 6th will be out last event. We may hold some meetings afterwards to clean up.

††††††††††††††† Speaking of events, we have several this month:

 

15 May Luau Dinner, 5pm until the food runs out, $10 a plate

22-23 May Post clean up. We need all hands on deck, please bring everyone you can find. The more people, the less time it will take.

28 May VA Mental Information Drive Through, 12-2pm

28 May Portales Main Square, Noon until?

28 May Special Meeting to decide the fate of the Post, 6pm

29 May Placing Flags on Veteran Graves, 7:30am at the Post, 8am at Mission Garden

1 Jun†††† Pick up flags, 10am

3-5 Jun MOCA Convention, 8:30am

4-5 Jun VFWA Convention

6 Jun†††† VFW Training

10 Jun Post Meeting 7pm, House meeting 6pm, Could be the last one!

17 Jun†† VFWA Meeting

18 Jun†† MOCA Meeting

10 JulyVFW Training 9am-2:30 (Maybe)

 

††††††††††††††† I canít tell you how sad it will be if the Post closes down. Our refuge for Veterans will be gone forever. Over 87 years of tradition and service will vanish. I donít want to see this happen, so everyone, please ask our fellows if they can volunteer to be our Quartermaster.

 

Be safe and if you need help, call your Post!
