Commander’s Call

Bob O’Hare

It’s finely spring, maybe we survived winter after all. Now lets keep a close eye on all the bicycles and walkers that will be out there.

Starting March 26 road construction starts on Bremer Ave. again, but it sure will be nice when it’s all done.

On March 17, several Amvets and Auxiliary Members attended the Foreign Food Day at the Iowa Veterans Home in Marshalltown Iowa.

Local, Department, and National AMVETS and Auxiliary members at Foreign Food Fair

Everyone really enjoyed  the day. More members should give it a try.

Well it’s that time of year again to start thinking about taking the step of putting your name in the hat for a term as one of the officers of the Amvets board. New members with new ideas are a good thing.

If there are any question or concerns Email me or give me a call.
