Members of VFW Post 3460,
I want to start off by saying I just received my Stimulus Check and I am donating it to Post 3460. The government sent these out mainly to help those that lost their jobs, are out of work, can’t pay their bills and to spend it to stimulate the economy. None of these fits me as mine would only go into my savings account.
Our post has no income and it will not for a very long time until we do. We rely on the canteen, small games, monthly breakfast, bingo and mostly hall rentals. We are applying for a small business interest free loan but that will have to be paid back in time. Even when we do open, we don’t know yet what restrictions we will be on and how many of you will return.
Anyone else wanting to make a donation it will be welcome.
As we reported, the conventions have been cancelled and all meetings are on hold. As far as elections for officers we are holding over the present officers until we can have a membership meeting. We have no idea when that will be.
The Rugby Team has the Red Cross using our post every Wednesday for a much-needed blood drive. Pat Flanagan and Joe Strauch give their time every Wednesday to open the post and oversee it. Bob Hughes and Pat Flanagan are giving much of their time keeping tabs on the post and paying the bills. And Frank Newburg is closing in on us reaching our membership goal of 100%.
We have put our trash removal on hold till needed, Comcast has given us a discount and we are looking into some sort of rebate on our liquor liability insurance.
In the meantime, I hope all is well with all of you and your families and you are following all the stay at home rules.
I look forward to the day when we can reopen Post 3460 in a safe way and once again the great post we have been.
Till I see or hear from you I remain,
Jake Knapp, Commander
