From Commander:

Dear Members,

Writing my portion of the newsletter on Memorial Day afternoon causes me to concentrate my thoughts on “What is Memorial Day”

Memorial Day is an American holiday, observed on the last Monday of May, honoring the men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, it marks the beginning of the summer season.

Dear Members,

Welcome to spring/summer. One day, forty and raining, the next 75 degrees, so plan your outdoor activities accordingly.

I would like to thank all who participated in our post cleanup day starting with Roy King donating all the mulch, and all who helped spread it. There was cabinet repainting and repair, electrical work and lots of cleaning. Thank you all.

Dear Members,

With 2016 drawing to a close I would like to thank all the members who have stepped up and volunteered their time to make Post 79 the success that it is today.

We have dealt with drama, conflict and we have dealt with team work, patriotism and brotherhood. It all averages out and makes us a strong Post.

December 2016

From the Commander:

Dear Members,

November was a month of Honor and Remembrance for all of America’s Veterans. Just because the month is over doesn’t mean everything is OK for our Veterans, there are homeless, sick and lonely Veterans all over America that still need our help and prayers. With the Christmas season upon us let’s give an extra prayer or gift or a donation to the Veterans Home or the Indianapolis Domiciliary.
