inform the membership that veteran Dave Masslon has volunteered

are extremely fortunate that he has offered to take on this
We are still in
need of a replacement for our friend Bill Weikel, our
Sergeant-at-Arms. Interested parties should leave contact
information with the bar manager or one of the post officers.
Just a Reminder
Please, when you
are out and about, whether driving or on foot, be aware of your
surroundings. There are far too many incidents of people injured
or killed this spring because of speeding or drivers making
impulsive decisions without realizing the implications of those
poor decisions. Also put those phones away! You can avoid injury
from tripping, walking in front of a car, and if driving, avoid
a serious accident just by setting that cell phone down.
Donít forget about Motherís
Day on the 12th of May and Armed Forces Day on the 18th,
which honors active duty members.
