URGENT NEWS TO POST MEMBERS!!!

MEMBERS:

Please review these time sensitive reminders!

1. Post-68 Elections: Post 68 will conduct annual elections at the May General Membership meeting on May 16th, 2019.

2. 2019 VEAC & Support Needed: Service Office Lane Adrian has sent to members via the Adjutant that the 2019 Veteran Experience Action Committee (VEAC) is scheduled to be held on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (April 25, 26 & 27) at the Elks Lodge located at 5102 Oleander Dr., in Wilmington. We’re expecting this VEAC to be even larger with on-site assistance being provided to more veterans than were helped during the 2018 event. One of the most critical keys to success is the presence onsite of a large number of volunteers. Those volunteers will assist with registration, escorting veterans to seating & assistance stations, parking lot control, managing client flow, assisting with food service and working with VA personnel. We need volunteers

Pls let the Adjutant Dan Dodge know if you would like to sign up to volunteer and he will get your name and contact info to Lane.  Please also indicate your preferred shift AND T-SHIRT size!
