Summer is coming to an end and school will be starting soon. A good time to start winding down from all the summer activities and start thinking about doing things around the house. If that doesn't grab you, how about coming down to the Post and volunteering. It's that time of year when activities are starting to pick up and we can always use some help. What ever time and/or talents you can lend is greatly appreciated. You might even have some fun. For example, do you like to dance or listen to live music, there are a lot of bands coming down to the Post for your entertainment. You could volunteer to help out or just come down to enjoy the music.

Just got back from a well deserved vacation out west. What a beautiful country we have and what a history we been through to get where we are today. If you ever want to count your blessing for being an American, take a road trip somewhere and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings. Had it not been for, and continues to be, the sacrifices of our Veterans keeping our America free, we are able to enjoy vacations and freedom to travel around our country. Thank you to all our Veterans and their families for the sacrifices they have made, and continue to make. Don't forget to thank a Vet and also thank your legislators for supporting our Veterans and keeping their promise to care for our Veterans. And if you hear of your legislator going back on that promise, let them know to get back on track. A quote from President Obama says it all:

"It' about how we treat our veterans every single day of the year. It's about making sure they have the care they need and the benefits that they've earned when they come home. It's about serving all of them as well as they've served the United States of America."

Congratulations to our Post for all the awards received at the State Convention in Maple Grove. It took a lot of hard work and sacrifice but it was worth it. Once again our Post website took 1st Place as the Best Veteran Service website in the State of Minnesota. This is the 8th honor in the 1st Place position (and once at 2nd Place) for our website. Thank you for all the contributions and comments that helped mold our website to this place of honor.
A ton of congratulation goes out to our Auxiliary as well. This is the first year (that I can remember) that a Buddy Poppy display took 1st Place in the Buddy Poppy contest at the State level and will be going to the VFW National Convention to be judged against all the other displays at the National level. WOW! Great job!! Our Auxiliary also brought home numerous other awards to include being the Auxiliary of the Year for District 8. What a great honor. It is well deserved. Keep up the great work.

The dedication of the Veterans Memorial Wall on Memorial Day was a huge success. There was a great turnout and a great ceremony. They did an awesome job on the wall, which was in the planning stages for years. We had many meetings with the city for the design of Veterans Park and with the designers of the wall. Images were exchanged and approved by members of all our Veterans organizations, which also includes our Native American Veterans. The results of all our hard work and planning are displayed in granite. There was media coverage from several local TV and newspapers. If you missed the dedication, here is a link to the dedication, provided by our local Pine Journal.
