2021 has not started out the way any of us would have hoped. In the first nine days of the year, we lost Past Post Commander Jack King and Post Quartermaster Ray Bassetti. When the current Covid restrictions are lifted and with the families’ blessings, the post will honor the memory of our fallen comrades with celebrations of life, in the post, for all the membership to attend.
The VFW requires that we elect a new Post Quartermaster within 60 days. In the interim, I have appointed Comrade Joanne Smith to act as Post Quartermaster until nominations and elections can occur. Comrade Smith is a retired US Army Chief Warrant Officer 4 with many years of financial and personnel experience and she will make all of us proud. The plan right now is to have formal nominations for Quartermaster at our February 11th meeting. Then old the election in the hours before our March 11th meeting. The officers and I will work out the details and they will be communicated to you as soon as possible. This is a special election and does not affect the yearly officer elections that will occur in May. The QM we elect in March will have to run again in April if they wish to continue in the position.
