COMMANDER

MELISSA JOHNSON

I can't believe how fast this year is going by. Let me start by welcoming our newest members. They are: Rudie Agpaoa, USN; Garret Arrieta, USMC; William Bailey, USN; Robert Boyd, USN; Larry Bradshaw, USAF; Eduardo Canto, USN; James Dominguez, USCG; Richard Gerard, USN; David Morillo, Jr. USN; Manuel Motuc, USN; Stewart Richardson, USCG; Dolores Scruggs, USN; Jose Sevillano, USN; Shirley Turner-Johnson, USN; Bobby Skinner, USN.  Welcome aboard everyone. I look forward to sharing time with you.

Just a reminder that the Post 2017-2018 nominations for next year’s Officers start at the April and May meeting and elections are in May. If you are interested in running for a position it is important to start attending the meetings and let us know of your intentions with the Post’s future.

I will keep this newsletter short and sweet this month but I want to close with thanking everyone for all that they do around the Post. I see your efforts every time I am here. It truly takes an Army to do and accomplish all the things that we do at the Legion and I want you to know how appreciated you all are.

The Auxiliary has put on an outstanding Children’s Easter Egg Hunt again this year!!!! Everyone had a lot of fun (especially the adults watching the kids). The auxiliary has sponsored many events for the Post Members and families. Now they are going to support the Veteran’s Stand Down. Please support them and donate these items to the Auxiliary!!!!!

 

 

RECYCLE USED PRINTER CARTRIDGES

We are still collecting used ink jet cartridges at the Post.   We turn them in to Staples and receive up to $40.00 store credit each month.   The credit is then used to reduce the cost of our office supplies - paper and mailing dots for the newsletter, ink for our printers, stamps, etc.   We used to turn in our quota each month, but haven't lately. We appreciate your help on this one.
