Dear comrades

   Its been a very busy and emotional first half of the year. We lost our beloved commander Donald Nelson and have several other members in and out of the hospital. I wish to express my gratitude to the members of the post, Men's Auxiliary, and Ladies Auxiliary for all you've done to make the first half a successful one. Your help made the Memorial Day parade and ceremony, fishing derby, and 4th of July celebration all possible.
   We are always looking for more volunteers to help with special events, holidays, and regular weekly activities. The Enon Apple Butter festival is coming soon and we can use all the help we can get. Volunteers are also needed for the Saturday night dinners and Sunday breakfast. If you can cook, serve or clean up afterwards your help will be greatly appreciated.
   Coming events include a Monte Carlo night, Halloween parties, and Thanksgiving potluck dinner (meat donated by your VFW please bring a side dish or dessert).Once again thanks to all the volunteers who have made everything happen. Without your help the VFW Post 8437 could not be possible.
