Commander’s Call

Bob O’Hare

The fourth of July is fast approaching with all the excitement that goes with the holiday especially for the younger kids lets be careful out there.

Do to the cost of printing and mailing the news letter and the fact that address maintenance is expensive ( $ 1.54 for every news letter returned ). Starting Sept. 1st the news letter will be sent out electronically only. If you have not been receiving your news letter electronically, please contact me or Mary Steinbach ( with your Email address. If you do not have Email there will be copy’s made and left at the bar.

The officers feel that we can use the $ 150.00 monthly expense for other ways to help Veterans. If you have any thoughts about this considered change, please express them to any officer or come to the next meeting ( the third Wednesday of every month at 7 pm at the WAVP ).
