Auxiliary April Meeting

We hope that everyone is doing well and staying well during this time of COVID-19.

As you may know, our Post is closed with the exception of carry out food and the Chicken BBQ’s. All are being encouraged to stay home as much as possible and when you need to go out to pick up food, medicine etc. to take precautions and to practice social distancing from others.

In light of COVID-19 and being safe, we have decided to cancel the Auxiliary meeting on April 21. It is our hope that this virus passes and we can once again gather safely at the Post very soon.

Tina Hinkle, Auxiliary President
Bette Ann Becker, Auxiliary Sr. Vice President

Chicken BBQ – April 4

Pre-Orders for the April 4 Chicken BBQ Fundraiser were amazing!
Only those that pre-ordered dinners should come through the drive-up between 10:30 am and 1 pm.
Pre-orders not picked up by 1 pm may be sold to another customer. If you did not pre-order, there may be dinners available to purchase after all pre-orders have been picked up.
Thank you so much for your support – the next Chicken BBQ will be April 25.

4th Quarter Commander’s Message

Greetings to all VFW Comrades, Auxiliary, and Social members.

Our post is growing exponentially with on average 8 new members attending our orientation meeting every month. This and the fact that more members are also attending both the veterans and auxiliary meetings is a very positive sign. My hope is that we keep growing as a post and have fresh ideas that will propel us into the future. As always if you have an idea to make this post more enjoy-able for us all please let me know so we can discuss and try to implement.

You undoubtedly have witnessed another change to this post. We have installed a new lottery machine that lets you enjoy all the Pa lottery games as well as KENO! I hope many of you find this as a new convenience and challenge. Expect more changes in the very near future that will further enhance the post for your enjoyment.

Please keep in mind that Veteran and Auxiliary members can become life members if they’re currently annual. This benefits you by never having to remember to pay dues, and in the long run save you money, and your engraved name will be placed on our Life Member Board. Veteran members – the Post will pay $100 of your life membership.

With my next article coming after the first of the year, please be safe with the approaching winter weather. I never want to hear any member of this post being involved in an accident. Please have a safe and happy holiday season.

As always it is my honor and privilege to be your Post Commander.

Yours in Comradeship
Chuck Becker
Post Commander
