Flag disposal

Flag disposal

Bill Hoeller (left) and Harold Rodenberger (right) conducted a flag retirement ceremony Sept. 18, 2016.  They honored twenty-seven unserviceable American Flags by properly disposing of them in their portable incineration device. They are now caught up so if you or your neighbors have an unserviceable flag, bring it by the office during regular office hours and they will add it to the collection for the next retirement ceremony.

Correction: World War II Veteran Ceremony is Nov. 17

In the September newsletter the date for the World War II Veteran Ceremony was incorrectly listed as October 13th. The ceremony is scheduled during the Nov. 17 social where the post will host a special program honoring its WWII veteran members. There will be a slide show and memorabilia from the big war. They will have a free dinner for the honorees and the post will present longevity pins to all those WW II members who can attend. Pins for those who can’t attend will be mailed out. Save the date and plan on attending so you can join us in honoring our members who are part of the Greatest Generation.


Shredding event scheduled for October 2nd

As a community service to our members, Post 3063 is having a shredder party on October 2, 2016. The truck will be in our parking lot from 2 – 5 pm so you can bring papers you want to shred during that time.

If you have papers to shred but can’t make it on that date and don’t mind leaving the papers in our secured storage room, you can bring them by anytime during normal office hours and we will dispose of the papers on the appointed day.

Since this is the first time we have offered this service we don’t know what the response will be so please limit your shreddable papers to five banker boxes or equivalent. If there is enough demand we will sponsor a similar event in the future.

There is no charge but donations to our relief fund would be appreciated.
