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.
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!
This year’s Auxiliary of VFW Post 1760‘s Children’s Christmas party was another gala event with fun had by all. This is an event the Auxliary puts on every year. There was more children then last year’s party, more gifts for the children, and of course Santa found time in his busy schedule to visit these wonderful children.
The Mesa VFW | Dode Morris Post 1760 Celebrates
their 85th Anniversary serving Veterans
On Wednesday, November 19th the Mesa VFW had a small gathering to commemorate and celebrate the 85th continued years of service to veterans in the Mesa community.
The 2014 East Valley Veterans Day Parade was a great event for all those involved. The weather was sunny and warm on this early November morning. Things started at 11am and the Mesa VFW was number 50 of 104 entrants in the parade. After the parade there was a BBQ Potluck to enjoy at the Post Canteen enjoyed by both members and visitors.
