On May 20th, the Post will be attending the 2nd annual Memorial Day ceremonies at Edmonds Community College that will be hosted by the Student Veterans Association. The event is held at the Black Box Theatre which is near the clubhouse for the golf course. It you enter on the southern entrance there will be plenty of signage telling you where to go. Its important to support our student veterans so your attendance will be appreciated.
On Friday, May 22nd, we will begin our two day Buddy Poppy fund raiser. I won’t give my normal beg for volunteers because those of you who participate will do so again, and those who don’t, will make themselves scarce. As usual, 20% do 80% of the work. However, Memorial Day and Veterans Day fund raising provides all of our Relief Funds used to support veterans, students, and the causes that support and assist many worthy endeavors. Adding one store requires a minimum of 8 volunteers and can easily produce as much as $2,000 in funds. We have plenty of stores, just not enough voluteers.
On Monday, May 25th, we will be at Edmonds Cemetery lining up at 11:45 to raise the flag. As in the past, several of our members will be participating. We would love to have a huge turnout to remember our fallen friends.
