Commander’s Corner (May 2021)

The VFW 2021 National Convention scheduled for July/August in Baltimore Md has been OFFICIALLY CANCELLED!


Sunshine, Spring, Love, Kindness, and Hope have not been cancelled.

…and our Post is not cancelling anything!

However, we do have to make adjustments. In spite of the Governor’s office announcing the possibility of going back to phase 2, the Post will continue moving forward as it has throughout the pandemic months, making adjustments to our meetings and other commitments as needed.

This takes me to our upcoming business meeting on May 6th and the Induction of the 2021-2022 Post Officers Ceremony.

The ceremony will be will be conducted at our Post by Past District Commander Carl “Chris” Christophersen who is also the current Commander of  Blackburn-Aurora Post 3348. This meeting will be made available to all members via Zoom as usual, and for this meeting – there will be in-person attendance allowed as well!

BUTin-person attendance will only be allowed to those members who have been vaccinated!

After much consultation and discussion on this matter, – for now, and although we desperately recognize the need  to “return to normal” – this is the adjustment we have deemed necessary in order to proceed safely with in-person meeting attendance.

So… There you have it. Get vaccinated!

Get vaccinated and you too can attend this next business meeting and induction ceremony in person!
