As we approach the installation of our new Commander at the May meeting, I want to thank all of you for the honor and privilege of serving as your Commander for these past two years. It has been a busy time, has passed swiftly and I have learned much.
At the District meeting of commanders recently, District 1 Commander Doug White told me that if he were not already a VFW member and free to join any post he liked, he would probably choose 8870. He said he very much enjoys visiting our post and finds our meetings among the most enjoyable of the district. High praise indeed and it is you, our members who deserve those accolades. Commander White has agreed to be our installing officer at the May meeting. My most visible role going forward, will be to continue to act as your newsletter editor.
