Commander’s Corner (July 2024)

Greetings Comrades,

As we approach the 4th of July holiday, I hope you all have plans to enjoy this special time with family and friends. It’s a perfect opportunity to reflect on the freedoms we cherish and the sacrifices made by so many in the name of freedom.

Meeting Time Change

Please note that due to the Independence Day celebrations, our regular monthly meeting is rescheduled to the second Thursday, which is July 11.

Core Values, Mission, and Vision Statements

Our post members have worked diligently with a facilitator to develop a list of Post 3063 core values and draft mission and vision statements. Leadership will use these statements to guide our strategy for potential redevelopment. We need everyone to take a look at the draft statements and make their top pick for a vision and mission statement by July 10! We’ll review the results and deliberate at the July 11 business meeting.

Volunteers Needed for Ballard SeafoodFest

We need volunteers for the Ballard SeafoodFest on July 13-14. We only had a few volunteers for the Fremont Fair, which created a burden for a couple of us who had to staff the booth nearly the entire weekend. Let’s not do this again. Please step up and write your name down on this volunteer schedule. Thank you in advance to everyone who is willing to take time out from a summer weekend to help!

Upcoming Brunch

Lastly, we’re hosting a brunch on July 20 that will be cooked by our business neighbor, Colt. (He cooked the amazing lasagna for our Vietnam Veterans social.) We’re still working on the menu, but I’ve heard whispers about biscuits and gravy. In the very least, come on out, grab a coffee, and say hi as you start your weekend.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication to veterans. Stay safe and happy 4th of July!

In comradeship,
Aly Teeter, Commander
