The Commander's Corner
I want to welcome back our snow birds who spent the winter down south!
We are glad to see you back home safely!
We have another big year planned, starting with our yard sale on May 13. If you are cleaning out and have any items to donate call the Post at 929-4695.
One item to note this year, the North Hampton School assembly is on a different day than usual. They are holding their’s after Memorial Day, on Tuesday, May 30, at 2 PM. They asked for us to wear our military uniforms, if possible.
We are looking forward to a big turnout for Memorial Day. This year, our ceremonies coincide with North Hampton’s 275th anniversary.
On the fundraising front, we discontinued our annual golf tournament this year. Instead, John Barvenik and his volunteers are selling concessions on the last Sunday of every month in the parking lot of the New England Dragway in Epping from 5 AM - 11 AM. This has been a very successful fund raiser so far.
Also, the Post is the named charity for 10 days at the Ocean Gaming, on Hampton Beach. Four of our days are over the Memorial Day weekend, and we are hoping for great success this year. In conjunction with our efforts at Ocean Gaming, we hold bingo there every Monday, and one weekend a month. We have a lot of fun, and are looking for more volunteer callers, so if you are interested, contact Chris Nevins at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 603-944-2887. Chris has been instrumental in running this program for the Post, and this program is another successful fund raiser for the Post.
Our efforts to reach out and support our veterans and keep the memory of our fallen brothers and sisters alive have not gone unnoticed. Post 35 continues to enjoy a wonderful reputation, and we are increasing our visibility in the communities we serve.
I know I speak for myself and my fellow officers when I say it is an honor to represent such a fine group of men and women veterans!
Thanks for all you do!
