Commander Larry, Vice Commander Bob, Service Officer Gil, Past Commanders Erv and Al, and Past Liaison Officer Thom set up and manned our display booth at the Chamber of Commerce Business Expo Center in Cedar Creek on April 25th. Our "Door Prize" was a extendable 20' flagpole with a 3X5 flag. Over 150 interested individuals dropped their names in the bowl.

Post 10 Media Blitz 2019
Our Media Committee has been busy identifying and contacting various business locations with a media sign at their location, requesting they consider promoting out Post's 100th Anniversary. The results have been very gratifying. Additionally, we have made inroads with some businesses to do mailing inserts promoting our organization. Also, some firms are hosting veteran membership drives for us at their locations. Our FaceBook coverage has expanded, along with our Website news this past year.
We are looking to expand our billboard ideas... so we are looking for members to step forward to be part of this group. Contact Bob Weller at 715-842-1755 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
