Note from the Commander


Just a short note as we go into September

The “National Night Out” event on July 30th went off without a hitch, thanks to all who participated in making our First Responders feel welcome and appreciated.

 August 3rd was the Annual Ride for our Riders.

August 6th was the installation of officers. It was an honor having our Riders and Sons participate. We missed the presence of our Auxiliary as they did not attend, as there were no changes in their leadership. Special thanks goes out to Debbie Michalski and her staff, and also to a very humble Post Adjutant, Dave Masslon, for coordinating this event. Our Post Sergeant-at-Arms Bill Porter, another valued member of our team, was also in attendance, assisting where needed.

I am told that “Remembering Our Heroes”, an event sponsored by our Riders, was a huge success. A great big thank you goes out to John Dillon, Past President of the Riders, as the point person and for his hard work in making this event a successful reality at Post 712. As you know, the event was reported in that day’s Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. 

Closing out August was the Post picnic, held at Post 712, which was enjoyed by all that attended. A special thank you goes out to Sons Commander Gary Hartman and his army for funding this picnic for the post. The Sons are probably the most misunderstood group at our post. They are usually a stone’s throw away and they tend to be the ones that step in when things go wrong, or something need done at the Post.

In closing I want to remind you that the Post Monthly Meeting will be on Thursday September 5th at 7:00 pm, instead of Monday as that is Labor Day.

Respectfully submitted,

Lee Phillips
