GUESTS AT THE POST
Please remember that it is EVERY member’s responsibility to ensure that all guests are properly signed in when visiting the Post. This includes sitting at the canteen, coming in for a party or attending one of the Post meals. The Sponsor is responsible for the guest and when the sponsor leaves so must the guest.
As members we need to sign in our guests and we need to help the bartenders ensure that guests are accounted for. Remember the Post is NOT just a canteen but rather we are Veteran’s Service Organization for Members and their guests.
I appreciate your support
Paul “RoadBlock” Patricio
Commander, Post 255
