Hopefully, everyone has recovered from their celebrations and we hope every member included in their resolutions to participate in more Post activities this year. The membership chose to support the officers in making changes to hall and lounge policies. Now it's time to support with your participation. The Foxhole is officially "non-smoking" but the Post still needs help cleaning it. January 10 at 8:30 is the date set. If everybody helps, we can make a quick and thorough sweep.
Student Competitions - The District judging for the annual VFW Voice of Democracy and Patriot's Pen Competitions is over. The winners will be presented awards at the Post on January 26th. Congratulations to all and Good Luck to those moving up.
Lounge - The new management has already made some positive and impressive changes in the lounge. Friday Night music and karaoke are scheduled with other activities throughout the month. Come by and see the refreshing look. Check the calendar above for scheduled events.
Boosters - Booster Meeting is Jan. 7 at 6:30. They are currently looking for a new Activities Coordinator. Members need to make sure their dues are paid up to participate in lounge events.
Suicide Awareness -- The Holidays may be over but Suicide is always present. Family Members are encouraged to be aware of signs of PTSD and/or suicidal thoughts. Do not try to handle this alone, help is available. If you or someone you know is considering suicide, check this link or call 1-800-273-8255 for help dealing with the feelings. There is HOPE!

Veterans Food Pantry
- The Veterans Food Pantry, sponsored jointly with Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) Chapter 240, was developed to assist local Veterans and their families (including Active Duty) needing assistance with basic food and staples. Weekly, the Post receives overstocked and donated items and safely stores them for distribution. Recipients must meet and maintain eligibility requirements to receive assistance.
