Greetings Comrades

Thanks for another great month. What a busy month with the District 14 meeting, our Buddy Poppy event at the VA Hospital in Temple and preparation for the Down’s But Not Out Buddy Walk. I want to thank everyone especially the cooks for such a great event at the VA Hospital and for our Buddy Walk. We feed over 500 at the Buddy Walk and everyone had nothing but good things to say about the food.   

This month we will have our meeting at 7:00 p.m. on the 10th. There are a lot of activities coming up this fall and we sure hope you come out and have fun with us. Don’t forget to attend our Cook Off on the 21st it is always a good one. Back by popular demand is our Halloween party on Saturday the 28th. Also, remember to come out and support our Bingo. Karaoke is still the hot thing on Friday nights.  

We continue to be a great part of this community and in supporting of others to include the many volunteer hours that some of you put in at the VA in Temple, the USO on Fort Hood and supporting our Adopt-A-Unit 4/3 Calvary who has been a great partner. Being part of the VFW means supporting the community we live so that others will see by our example and someday serve in the military as we have.

We want to welcome our new members to the Post please introduce yourself to them and welcome them.  I encourage our new members to come and participate in the many activities at the Post this month, there is something for everyone. Please get out there and recruit new members to help veterans all over. Always remember and support our Bingo on Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday and our ever popular Karaoke on Fridays.

Hope to see everyone at our next meeting on the 10th of October at 7:00 p.m. or earlier for the VPR at 6:50 p.m. Thank you all again for your hard work and assistance in all we do here at VFW Post 4008.

Yours in Comradeship
