With summer half over and kids back in school the Post has fall events that you should put on your calendar! Check ours, linked above, for Lounge Events and on this page for updates on the Golf Tournament/Fund raiser (Sept. 26th), the Veterans Day Parade (Nov. 8th), and the next Arts & Crafts Marketplace.
The Hendersonville Veterans Day Parade welcomes groups to participate. Local Veterans are also encouraged to be part of this celebration down Main St. to recognize their contribution to preserving our republican way of life and our unique democratic process. Every Veteran's part was significant and worthy of participation, no matter the size.

Suicide Awareness --
Too many Veterans are taking their lives. Family Members often don't understand the conflicts PTSD sufferers deal with and have difficulty communicating with them. Be aware of signs of PTSD and/or suicidal thoughts. Do not shrug them off as a 'condition' nor 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. HOPE is not gone!
