• Commanders Message
Well my year has almost come to an end. I would like to take this time to thank
all my officers and the employees of Post # 8 for all the help they gave me in
doing my job as Commander this year. I have accepted and been elected for the
position for another year which I will proudly do my best to perform.
Onward and upward we go, we are making good progress with the new
Vietnam Era Showcase in the hall, I want to say thank you to all the guys at Quest
Arms and Eric Richard for the great contributions they made of the Vietnam Era
Weapons, also to all the others that have contributed items.
We started some new things at the Post this year, on Tuesday evenings we do
some music and snacks to pass, on other occasions we are doing some Karaoke.
The Pool Leagues, the Dance Club and Commanders Club are still going good.
Dinners on Friday and Saturday are still going on.
We must all remember this is our post and it takes all of us working together to
make it work.
Improvise, Adapt and Overcome
