As we move into our new year, our Veterans of Foreign Wars and Auxiliary have done a few proud projects that I am very proud of. I would like to start with Post 3917 leading the parade in Victor, Colorado for their Gold Rush Days Parade in July. Our Color Guard and fellow marchers lead the parade proudly and looked sharp to represent our VFW. We also had the opportunity to assist in hosting the SOCO Live concert that was in America the Beautiful Park. With the help of our VFW, Auxiliary and Warriors it was a big success for our Veterans/Community and our support for them.
I am inviting everyone to our upcoming events. On September 4, 2017, we will have our annual Labor Day Parade in Fountain, Colorado starting at 1000 hours. If you are unable to march with us, the Auxiliary will have their parade float that you can ride on so you may participate in the parade. Then we will be having our Labor Day Picnic following the parade at 1300 hours in the pavilion at our Post. Also, we will be having a POW/MIA Recognition Day chili dinner on September 15, 2017 at 1800 hours.
I invite you to your Post to meet new Members, Auxiliary Members, and catch up with old friends. We always have room for volunteers for any event going on at our VFW. Remember, our Post and Auxiliary meet every 2nd Tuesday at 1900 hours. So, please contact the VFW or stop in to see how you can help make our VFW better. Thank You.
Yours in Comradeship,
Jeffrey T. Buchwalter
