Loyalty Days has come and gone and it was a great weekend. The Commander/Presidents Testimonial banquet was awesome, a lot of friends and family attended along with a few guest of honor. The first guest we honored was Tony Jurek for his sacrifices as a POW in the Korean War. Tony was honored with a Quilt of Valor handed down from the District Commander and President to the Post Commander and President then wrapped around Tony to symbolize comforting him. The Quilt was registered with the National Quilt of Valor Foundation. Thanks to Carl Schenk for being a member of the Quilt of Valor Foundation and for enlightening us about the Quilts of Valor for us to honor Tony. It is our intention to honor other deserving Veterans in the District.

It's getting to be that time of year again for membership push. If you know you haven't paid your membership dues yet this year (or last or longer), please pay them now. If you know a Veteran who is eligible for the VFW, please get them enrolled. Membership is very important in several ways, it shows your support for your Post and District, it shows support for the VFW, your voice gets heard in issues that affect Veterans, and you stay informed on issues and events that are happening at your Post. I say "your Post" because without membership there would be no Post. If we have no Post, we have no Auxiliary. The Auxiliary has been working hard on their membership and have reached their goal of being 100%. Congratulations!!

As you can tell by all the events listed on the calendar, we have had a lot going on at the Post and there are a lot more to come. We will even be starting up Burger Nights again (with the help of the Eagles). We can always use more volunteers to help out at the Post or even from home. Every one can contribute in one way or another. Just let us know you are interested in helping and we can put your talents to good use. Any help, in any capacity, ultimately goes to helping a Veteran in need. I'll bet you're all ready doing things to help out and you don't even realize it. Check out our Community Service page to see how you can help your neighbor or the community and reporting to let others know you care.

I'm hearing a lot of good things about the bands that have been playing at the Post. We are getting more people coming out to dance and not all of them are local. Lil and Carl have been doing a great job of contacting and managing the bands and keeping track of everything. The consistency of when the bands play lets people know how to plan their weekends. If you haven't been down for a dance recently, come on down and have a great time. Check out the calendar of event to know when the next band is playing.

For those who haven't noticed the decorated red wagon on the table by the gambling office, the Auxiliary is having another "Wagon of Cheer" fundraiser. The wagon is getting filled with all different types of "cheer" and party favors to raise money for veterans. The drawing will be held on St Patrick's day March 17th following their corned beef and cabbage dinner. Last year they had a wheelbarrow filled with cheer, this year they have a wagon. Either way, you have a chance to win the wagon and everything in it, but first you must buy a ticket. They have tickets at the Post or you ask one of the Auxiliary members. Good luck.

Congratulations on our Post's VFW Auxiliary accepting two new male Auxiliary members, Dan Forgorty and Andy Angell. I don't know which was actually the first one but hopefully there will be more to follow. They also welcome three new lady Auxiliary members as well, Becky Newton, Darla Kocian and Denise Swanstrom. Way to go Auxiliary!! The Auxiliary is close to being 100% in membership which is awesome. Keep up the good work.

Just a quick note to wish every one a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. This is a joyous time of year for families and freinds to get together and celebrate the holidays. But let's not forget about those that are not here to celebrate with family and friends due to being on active duty protecting our country. Think of them in your prayers and think about their family being just as lonely without them. And if you know of someone that is homeless, please lend them a hand so they can enjoy the season as well.
