Sep 8 - Golf & Construction -

A reminder to be at the monthly meeting this Thursday to discuss this month's golf tournament and renovation of the hall bathrooms. There are still positions open to play in the tournament. Also, the hall will be closed starting Monday 15th. The lounge will still be open during the renovation.

Lounge update: our long-time Karaoke Jockey (KJ) Dave Lagness has told us he will be moving. After nearly 14 years of Friday Night entertainment Dave's final night will be October 10. Due to his relocation, he needs to take several weeks off before then, so this Friday will be his only performance this month. TWO MORE PERFORMANCES! Come out Sept. 12 and give Dave a great showing for all he's done for the post. And be sure to attend his final night next month! Dave is one of the founding members of our Booster Group and the motivation behind our Wednesday Horseshoes. We are sorry to see him leave, but encourage him as he moves on to his next adventure. We wish him all the best and look forward to his return visits.

Due to the upcoming construction and Labor Day Weekend, the Post will only be open for breakfast on Saturday, Sept. 6. An announcement will be made when they will start again. Also, until further notice, Trivia and Texas Hold-Em nights are canceled.

It has been announced that our neighboring Post in Gallatin has closed. We are sorry to hear this and open our doors to any of their members who would like to transfer to ours.

Aug 19 - Summer Happenings -

School is back in session. Along with their class work, students are working on their Annual VFW Essay Contest submissions. Across the country, over $500,000 in scholarships and awards are given out each year. The contests are broken down into two age groups. The Patriot's Pen Competition is a 300-400 word essay and open to students grades 6-8. This year's theme is "Why I Appreciate America's Veterans". High school students (grades 9-12) compete in the Voice of Democracy Competition with an oral presentation lasting 3-5 minutes. Their theme is "Why Veterans are Important to our Nation's History and Future". Both are open to current students, even home schooled. Information is available at all Posts.

Post Improvements -- Over the last month, Life Scout Mitchell Burkhardt has been busy on his Eagle Project. He chose the Post to make repairs and improvements to as his service to the community. This is a standard practice for Boy Scouts as they advance to the ultimate rank of Eagle Scout. Mitchell reviewed the Post's needs, laid out a plan, acquired funding and materials, then solicited workers to carry out the project while he supervised. The Post now has new horseshoe pits, a freshly painted and repaired porch area, refinished picnic tables, and a newly condensed picture wall of past commanders. The Post is grateful for all the work and commitment Mitchell and crew put into his project. His Eagle Court of Honor will be held at the Post at a future date.

RENOVATION -- A long awaited improvement is planned to start Sept. 12. The hall bathrooms are being improved to ADA standards. The project is expected to take several weeks, but construction should not effect the lounge. The hall will be closed during the renovation.

Notable Events -- Playing upstairs will be the BAMM Band on Saturday Aug. 23. The band features a blues-rock style suitable for dancing and listening. $5 cover. Also, every Saturday, Pancake Breakfasts from 8-11, cooked and served by our good friends from Knead Dough.

Committees -- The Golf Tournament and the Hendersonville Veterans Day Parade committees are still meeting and bringing things together. The Golf Tournament, slated for Saturday, Sept. 27, is still looking for sponsors. The Parade will be Sunday, Nov. 9 and still has openings for groups to participate.

Southern Conference -- Charleston, W.V. is the place for this year's VFW Southern Conference, Nov. 6-9. Attendees are highly encouraged to make early reservations. Visit the W.V. Department website for more information.
