Do you know a high school student who could use some help paying for college?
Let them know about the VFW’s Voice of Democracy Scholarship competition! Find out more information at VFW.org > VOICE OF DEMOCRACY
This Year’s Topic: My Responsibility to America
ENTRY DEADLINE: November 1, 2016
We need to spread the word, and we’re asking friends like you to help out. The Voice of Democracy Program is open to students in grades 9-12 (on the Nov. 1 deadline), who are enrolled in a public, private or parochial high school or home study program in the United States and its territories.
I just wanted to share this with all of you who weren’t able to come help out at the National Guard Deployment event yesterday.
First, I want to thank those from our Post who came to help out: Angela Donkers (and her daughter, Heather), and Kristi Kellogg. I noticed several other familiar faces, Scott Burns and the beautiful Michelle. Thank you for stepping up and sacrificing part of your Saturday. In case you want to follow up, the main sponsors of yesterday’s event were Post 7968 (Apache Junction) and District 4.
This year we had a great Memorial Day with all those involved. Saturday, we had a great turnout at Mesa Cemetery of about 75 people to help with getting the flags out on the veteran gravestones. And on Monday morning we had a great ceremony that was organised by our own Chaplain Frank ‘Gunny’ Alger. A big Bravo Zulu to you comrade on a job well done!
This is a quick reminder about the Memorial Day Activities the last weekend of this month on Saturday May 28th and Monday May 30th. Remember that “Many hands make light work” and these are activities that are very important not just to use but to the community and the families of those that have passed that we are honoring. Please pass the word to your people, put it on your calendars, and lets see a GREAT turnout this year for ALL the events.
First off, we want to wish all those mothers out there a Happy Mother’s Day today from Post 1760 members!
Yesterday (Saturday, May 7th 2016) we had our District 4 meeting at the VFW Post 3632 (Tempe). Part of the proceedings was the Buddy Poppy Display contest with the winner to participate at the VFW State Convention representing District 4. We’re happy to announce our own Auxiliary won first place!
