Hi Comrades!

We had a pretty good turnout.  There were 15 members present, 5 of them past
commanders.

Sadly we had to drape the charter for one of our comrades; Jim Lynch. May he rest in
peace.

Installation was held and our new officers will officially take over when the state officers
are installed on June 6th.

The new officers are as follows:

  •        Commander; Terry Rollins      
  •        Sr. Vice; Tom Sancrant
  •        Jr. Vice; Mike Santure
  •        Quartermaster;  Tom Merce
  •        Chaplain; Roger Williams
  •        Post Advocate; Chris Stark  
  •        Surgeon; Joe Joly
  •        Trustees; Eddie Weaver, Don Ellison and Floyd Martin.

A big thank you to everyone who stepped up to keep our post running smoothly.

The unisex handicap restroom in the Kennedy Room is nearing completion.  It is looking
