Hello to all, I can’t believe another month has passed. I hope your summer is going well.

I would like to start out by thanking all members that have been volunteering their time
to make our post look nice. Cathy Honsaker and Rick James have done a wonderful job

patching holes and painting. Bob Clark laid the new carpet in the front entrance   We
can always use volunteers if you have time, we would love to see new faces

I would like to welcome our newest Auxiliary members Vickie Guinn, and Brandon
Heaston. If you have any friends or family members bring them in. It is always nice to
meet new people.

Starting this month, we will start collecting acme cashback. If you have a receipt, please
bring it in we will have a collection envelope.

Our 100th anniversary has come upon us. I hope to see everyone come out with their
family and celebrate with us.

As most of you know by now Mary Munn has been sick. I would like everyone to keep
her in their prayers. She has been a vital person in keeping our post going on a daily
