From the Commander – Joe Korting
February our post reached a milestone in regards to new membership.
Valentines dinner was more successful than anyone could have expected due to those exceptional volunteers. I won’t mention names, you know who you are. Home Depot Jay Johnson and staff donated propane tanks and grill accessories to add to our success.
VA Chillicothe visits are presently on lock down due to COVID. The Post is supporting finances monthly for unit parties.
Special thanks to HD Supply and staff for its ongoing support that allows us to provide for Saints Alive and the less fortunate of which sixty present are veterans. Another foot note- Saints Alive has donated a trailer that will be used in all of our volunteer projects.
Thank to everyone involved in these projects. Without your efforts it would not be possible.

Food and drinks will be provided. Kids must be present to receive baskets. We will also have a box out for candy donations. Please help us out.
Our next bingo will be March 17th at 6 PM please come and join us for some fabulous food and prizes. We hope to see you there. It’s always a lot of fun.
I also want to add, for all who attended the February 14th Valentine’s Day steak dinner-
Thank you! It was amazing to see all who showed up. I hope you enjoyed your dinner and had a great evening. Mike and Doug did a great job on the grill. Also a special thanks to Makaylie and Kristal for all your help in the kitchen. YOU ALL ROCK!!
On behalf of the ladies Auxiliary have a great month.
From the Honor Guard
Hello From The Honor Guard. Having moved through February and into March now we’re starting to get a sense of spring. Always an exciting time. I trust you feel it as well.
As discussed in our February newsletter we are working to coordinate a Flag Retirement Ceremony in May with the Westland ROTC and the assistance of Cub Scouts Pack 275. To see these kids participating in these ceremonies is inspiring. We need to get our youth involved so they can get a sense of how lucky they are to be living in the greatest country on earth. Also to see what it has cost to do so.
Our next planned meeting will be on March 9th @ 18:30. The next Honor Guard Bingos will be held on the 3rd and 31st starting at 18:00. It is always a great time. You can get a chance to win some groceries and even holler BINGO!! Seriously, it’s a great time to kick back a little.
As we’ve mentioned, being able to become a member of an Honor Guard gives you an opportunity to help a friend, family member, or a brother or sister here at the post through a very difficult time. The reward of knowing you have participated is immense. Give us a chance to see if it’s a good fit. God Bless this great country!!
My best to all of you, Terry
