Commander's Corner

Greeting Comrades,

I want to thank everyone who helped make 2017-2018 a very successful year. We have once again achieved All State Honors. We finished second in Division 3 and finished eleventh out of 314 Posts state wide. Let’s recap some of this past year’s highlights. In October, we handed out Buddy Poppies at the State Fair and raised over $300000 for our Relief Fund. In December, we raised over $14,000.00 and lots of Toys for the Toys for Tots campaign. In April, we held our 8th Annual Golf Tournament and was able to donated $5000.00 to the Collin County History Museum.

In our previous 7 golf tournaments we had donated over $30,000.00 to the Collin County Veterans Memorial Park. This past Memorial Day weekend, our members once again handed out Buddy Poppies and raised over $1400.00 for the Relief Fund. Great Job!

We have a few events coming up in June, the first is our State Convention. This is from June 14-17th and will be held in Dallas. July 1st is our David Allan Coe Concert. Tickets are going fast, we will only be able to sell 180. The Post will close at 5:00pm that day and will reopen at 6:00pm, but you must have a ticket to get in.

Sincerely,

Jim “Nick” Nichols,
Commander

Auxiliary Corner

Hi Auxiliary members

We have had a great year with so many accomplishments.  As our new year begins let’s strive to outdo the last year. I am so very proud of everything that we did and look forward to serving in the Auxiliary with each and every one.  Thank you for your daily support of our Veterans and Active duty soldiers.

Don’t forget Dept meetings are this month, and our awesome special appearance from David Allan Coe is July 1. Limited tickets get them early.  Lastly the annual 4th of July parade, come out and help us show our community who we are.

 

With love, your now past President

Saving Coupons for Veterans Families

We have been asked to save coupons from our newspaper inserts, etc., to be distributed to families of current and former veterans.  It would help if you can cut them out, but if not, just bring in the entire insert.  Give them to the person working the cantina.  Please contact Tobi Viles for additional information.
