Commander's Corner

Greetings Comrades,

Hello again comrades. A thank you to all who have been coming to the post and the post meetings. We would like to see you a lot more often and please volunteer for some of our functions and events. 

With that, these events are on the events calendar for October.

 October 6th is our annual tailgate party. The game between the Cowboys and Green Bay starts at 3:30. If you’re cooking your favorite tailgate specialty, please be at the post at or before 12:00 to set up your area.  As always, we will be judging your dish as well as your theme.

October 8th we will have a table at the Colin County College job fair. Please see our service officer, Robert Kehrberg for more details.

October 12th we will be sponsoring a table at Ratrodtober being held at the Tupps brewery in McKinney from 10am to 4pm.  We will be selling hats and T shirts and recruiting new members. We will need volunteers to staff the table, so please sign up at the post or by email – qmlsp2150@gmail.com.

October 14th is our Post general meeting at 6:30.

October 18th, fish fry night, we will have the drawing for the Motorcycle Raffle for Miss T.  Tickets are still available for $50 each. The April 1st band will be providing entertainment. This will be a great night to come to post!

October 26th will be our annual Halloween costume party.  Another great night for fun! We can always use help with set up so please volunteer.

I also want to congratulate Jim “Nick” Nichols, who has been selected for the Congressional Veteran Commendation by our congressman Van Taylor. The presentation time and date TBD.

There are also plenty of events coming up in November, so look for them and step up like all good comrades do,

Look forward to seeing y’all

“Fair winds and following seas”

GO Navy!

Sincerely,

Guy Green
