Newsletter April 2019
Persian Gulf War
On February 28, 1991, a mere 100 hours after the coalition launched its ground offensive, U.S. Central Command liberated Kuwait and halted offensive operations. With the approval of the UN Security Council, a formal cease-fire took effect on April 11, thus ending the Persian Gulf War.
Spring is here and Easter will be here soon. The Post will have a luncheon for Easter from 1:00 – 5:00PM We will be providing the Ham and scalloped potatoes. We are asking for the people that attend to bring a side dish to share.
Lenten Fish Fry
The Post is still having our Friday fish fry’s until Easter so if you haven’t been to one of our dinner’s yet we hope to see you soon. We can also still use some volunteers!
With Spring here, we would like to do some cleanup outside. We don’t have a date yet but hopefully this month and if not next month for sure in order for our Post to look good for Memorial Day. The branches from our trees and some leaves and a little yard maintenance will not take but a few hours especially if we have a lot of people to help because like I’ve said before many hands make light work.
Our Post has a new Dart Board we are starting a Post Dart League in May and there is a sign-up sheet in the Canteen, it will be on Sunday afternoons.
Vietnam Traveling Memorial
Northfield VFW Post 6768 is hosting the Vietnam Traveling Memorial wall on Thursday June 13th thru Sunday June 16th. I know it’s not until June but I just wanted to give people the information now so you can try to make plans to attend this event.
Next month are the final nominations and voting for the 2019 – 2020 Officers. If you are interested in running for a position please plan on attending the meeting.
April brings us to nominations and election. Please consider holding an office or chairmanship or both. We need to keep our auxiliary strong and moving forward.
Our March bingo night was a huge success. The residents of KentRidge Senior Living enjoyed having us for the evening. Thanks to you all who participated in this activity.
The Cuyahoga Falls Expo was a huge success. CC Wade was very well received and could possibly get some more sponsors. We also presented her with our contribution for her continued journey.
Woody Carl was our last winner of the lottery board. Hope you won big!
Fish fries continue on Fridays during lent. The post could always use some help. We are also doing the bake sale so contributions are also appreciated. Big thank you to those of you who have supported this event.
