Ladies and Gentlemen,
Let me begin by
thanking all of you for giving me the opportunity to serve as your Post
Commander. Together with the rest of the
newly elected officers, we promise to give it our 110% so that we may continue
to maintain, if not improve, the operation of our Post.
I would also like to extend my sincere appreciation to all our post and auxiliary members who have been tirelessly and selflessly volunteering their time and money to keep post activities and events going and our commitments met as well. Kudos to the Post Ladies Auxiliary for a very nice Wreath Hanging Ceremony at the Llorona Park (River site) last Memorial Day.
This quarterly newsletter will be posted on our website and will also be mailed to members with current mailing address after verification of our post roster.
Please take note of our upcoming activities on the back and I urge each and every one of you to support them with your attendance and participation.
Regards to you and your families and see you at the post.
