Fall is here so that means we’re in the midst of Post 3063’s fundraising season. As the Seelig family knows, planning and executing a fundraising event is no easy feat. Please show up and support your fellow veterans on Oct. 21! It only takes 15 seconds to RSVP here so do it now. (So far we have less than 15.)

Here are a few events coming up this week:
Oct. 3 at 5:30 p.m. – Deployment care package assembly with the Fremont Rotary at the post
Oct. 4 at 3:30 p.m. – Public comment about the Memorial Stadium Memorial Wall landmark status; contact me for details.
Oct. 5 at 7 p.m. – Monthly Business Meeting

Another big item on our radar is the VFW’s Youth Essay Program. We have the high school level Voice of Democracy contest, middle school level Patriot’s Pen contest, and the VFW WA Department-sponsored elementary school level Youth Essay contest. Encourage your family, neighbors and friends to participate and submit their essays to the post by Oct. 31.

Looking ahead to next month, we’re in the early stages of planning a Veterans Day event at the post. If you want to help with the planning, let me know at [email protected].

TMC at Post 3063 for 9/11 Service Event

On Sept. 16, The Mission Continues, a dedicated organization committed to supporting veterans and promoting community service, sponsored a service event at our post. The event was held to commemorate the tragic events of 9/11 and honor the memory of those who lost their lives on that day.

Volunteers from various backgrounds, including veterans, SeaTac Customs and Border Protection agents, family and community members, gathered with a shared sense of purpose and unity. Their mission? To give back to the community and contribute to the VFW post’s mission of supporting veterans and their families.

The day’s activities were diverse and impactful, reflecting TMC’ dedication to making a meaningful difference. Participants rolled up their sleeves and got to work with tasks that ranged from furniture assembly to picture hanging, bookshelf reinforcing, tree pruning, and even the respectful recycling of unserviceable American flags.

In addition to the meaningful service activities organized by TMC and the dedicated efforts of the volunteers, the sense of community and support during the event was further exemplified by the VFW Post 3063 Auxiliary. They played an integral role by providing a delicious lunch to all the hardworking volunteers.

Thank you to TMC and Wes King for supporting our post and local veterans!
