Good Day Everyone,

     As previously stated, there are a lot of things happening so I am trying to keep everyone informed. That being said I ask each of you to spread the word so others can know as well. I am putting this out early because we have things going on as early as Saturday the 14th.


     On Saturday 14 December "Wreaths across America” is at the Cape Canaveral National Cemetery (CCNC) and the truck will be escorted there in the morning by the Patriot Guard and the Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association (CVMA). We should be arriving to the CCNC around 10:15 AM. If you want to help place wreaths on the head stones of veterans please come up to the CCNC and bring gloves. This is an awesome event.


     A second event is taking place Saturday 14 December at 11:15 am at the Pinecrest Cemetery 815 Clearlake Road, Cocoa, FL, 32922. This is a Wreaths Laying Ceremony for Medal of Honor recipient Emory Lawrence Bennett.


     On Sunday we will be delivering Christmas to three more families. If you would like to go with us please be at the post by 1:30 PM. These three families are right in Cocoa and all three live in the same area. This makes raising the funds all worthwhile.


     General Membership meeting is this Wednesday 7:00 PM and this is the time to be a part of what is going on in the Post so please come to the meeting and give us your feedback on upcoming events and other happening at our Post. If you have a suggestion or concern please put a comment card in the box by the coffee machine and leave a name and number in case we have any questions of you.


     Recently we had discussed our Post hours for Christmas. We have a volunteer for 25 December and the Post will be open from 11:00 am to 5:00 PM


Have a wonderful week.
