Comrades and Families,

I'd like to say congratulations to all newly elected officers of the Post.  Some old, some new.  The Post has a new House Committee and they are coming up with new ideas and with their younger age have the ambition to work and make some things better for all at the Post.  I look forward to being part of a somewhat new slate of officers for us and continuing to do our best to perform our duties to Veterans.  Look to the internet more and more here shortly in the future for new announcements and activities.  We are trying to be more productive with information and more people can be reached with our website and Facebook posts.  Keep up with them to be sure you don't miss anything.

With this being my fourth term as your Commander, I hope that I have been helpful and can provide for our next leader the opportunity to excel and expand on all that we have accomplished.

Yours in service,

Joe Wolsey, Commander Post #3838

Dear Auxiliary Members,

Such an honor on Memorial Day to participate in the ceremony at the Osage Center. Hope all had a nice weekend and reflected on how important our organization is. Volunteering at our Post or at the Veterans Home or even an event elsewhere that shows your support to the men and women who gave their all. Timr is precious, time is priceless, and as your president I understand time is really hard to give, however I also understand that it only takes a small amount of time to make someone happy and feel worthy.  There will be times I go into the canteen to drop something off but try to always say "Hello" or "How are you?" to a Veteran sitting there.  Makes them feel visible and not invisible.  Each committee in our Auxiliary needs help, the Chairperson cannot do it all.  To make a success out of our Auxiliary takes a team.  Yes, it does seem like the same people do the same job every time there is an event; it's not because they want the credit for it, they do it because no one else will volunteer and they know the job needs done.  Let's get more help to these events and committees.  We want to get to know you and you to know us.

Yours Truly,

Sandy Prichard, Auxiliary President
