            Thanks to all who helped make the 123rd Annual VFW National Convention a great success.  Eric Sullivan and his crew did a fantastic job with Registration.

Jerry Youngblood got to be Senior Vice Commander Duane Sarmiento’s driver for the Convention.

I had the pleasure of working with a hardworking crew of Comrades and Auxiliary members as VIP drivers. They made runs to the airport and made sure they were delivered to the hall on time for the appearances on stage. Post 5789 members included James Neighbors, Kris Haddock, and Chuck Stephenson.  A hearty Thank You goes out to them and all the other volunteers from the 5th District, The 3rdDistrict and across the State.  A special thank you to the Auxiliary members who volunteered.  Your presence made a difference and was positively commented on.

I hope to have a discussion about the Convention and what changes are coming. The August meeting will be August 10, 2022 at 7:00pm. Hope to see you there.

Don’t forget we host Karaoke on Friday nights with Lisa and Saturday nights with Gary.  We also host a Corn Hole tournament on Monday nights. Join us for the fun.
