AMVETS Commander

Membership Dinner was well attended. Thanks to the Sons and past Commanders for the raffle prizes. And thanks to all who have paid their 2018 dues; the membership cards are being mailed out to those not attending the dinner. Several new members and a few transfers have joined Post 79. The guest for the dinner was George Cummings, National President of the Riders and his daughter, Courtney National Junior AMVETS. He spoke on what the Riders group represents and hopes of organizing more chapters. If anyone would like more information please contact me.
