A Message from the Commander


               I hope everybody had a great Christmas Holiday. The new year is on us and I hope you have a happy and prosperous new year.

               I am pleased to announce that the post has a new Service Officer, Joe Knowles. Joe just finished some serious training and has hit the ground running. If you know of a veteran in need of assistance give Joe a call.

               I really need some help if any of you would like to get involved in a small way, or large if you like, I would love to hear about it. The Adjutant is not staying on after this year due to District commitments so we will be looking to fill that position. It involves taking minutes at the meetings, keeping records, filing some reports. This can be done in an hour or so per month. Tom can sit down with you and show you the ropes.

               Jr Vice Commander is a vacant position. The job is easy. It involves fund raising and events planning. We haven’t been very active in that department so we can use someone with fresh ideas. Again you only put in as much or little as you want.

               Sr Vice Commander is also vacant. Another easy job involving membership. Processing membership renewals and occasional phone calls. Membership is my pet project so I will be of assistance whenever needed.     

               Each one of these positions are elected positions and is good for one year. We hold our officers’ elections in May.

               There will be a motorcycle show at the Naugatuck Event Center in February. I expect to have a booth there as usual and would like to see some of you come over and say hello and get acquainted with some of our active members.

               Don’t forget, we hold our regular meetings on the first Wednesday of every month at 1930 (7:30pm). Also, if you have any suggestions or ideas to make the post more interesting, call the post or send email to psopost17@comcast.net. Stop in for coffee, 9 – 10:30 am, every weekday. Shoot the breeze, reminisce, learn something, teach something, tell stories. It’s all good.
