Commander’s Message

Fall is here and with that are cooler temperatures. Make sure you change out your HVAC filters and any preset lamp times to come on and go off. The State Fair is in full swing and as usual there is a Recruiting Event in the main building signing up new members for all Posts within the State of Virginia. Make sure you stop by and let them know you are a proud member of Post 9808.

The Post has planned several fun days at the Post beginning with the monthly Post Breakfast on 7 October and followed that same day with a Steak Dinner. You MUST RSVP for dinner by 2 October so that we have enough steaks for everyone. The cost will be $18 per person. On Veterans Day, we are switching things up a little. I know many like to attend programs at other locations such as the VA War Memorial so our program will be just prior to the Annual Pig Roast/Luau. More details will be published in the November Newsletter.

If you have not already purchased your 2024 calendar, please come by and do so. Each calendar is $20 and
your name is entered in a State drawing where you might win between $50 and $1,000. If you do win, your name is put back in for future drawings. Several of Post 9808 members have won in the past. Will you win in 2024?

We continue to support Liberation Veterans Services and Lonesome Dove monthly. Bingo is every
Wednesday and Friday night. More volunteers are needed to continue being successful. You do NOT
have to commit to every night so come once a month. I do ask that you let us know when you can help us
out. We rarely have too many walkers so lace up your walking shoes and get your steps in!

We had our first meeting starting at 6:30 pm and it was well attended. Come be a part of the Post to hear
firsthand what is going on. Let your voice be heard. Your opinion counts.

Remember to recruit. We have already had a few new members sign up, but sadly we have already lost
10 members. Welcome these new members when you see them. Encourage Annual members to convert
to Life membership and Life members to Legacy Life. Do you have questions? See any of the Officers of
Post 9808 or come see me.

Enjoy this cooler weather if you are a Fall person. I’m summer so it’s already getting cold for me!

Team Veterans,
Doris Wollett
