PA's ALLEN JONES STEALS THE SHOW
Allen Jones, 94 and PA Go To Guy, stole the spotlight during President Trumps speech, July 24th, at the VFW Convention in Kansas City. President Trump invited Allen to come up to the stage as he was thanking WWII Veterans. Allen not only took the stage but spoke for 10 minutes. He spoke of his brother, who he lost in Italy in WWII, and asked Trump if he would invite him and his family to the White House when he turns 95 next April. The president said certainly. Allen then had him autograph a picture of him with Trump when he was campaigning for president in 2016.
Thank you Allen, you made PA proud as you always do.

MY TWO CENTS: We keep complaining about being unable to recruite younger members. I think I hit on the answer. When I joined, in 1995, I would say 75% of our District members were from WWII. Most have passed away now. That is a lot to replace. At our recent officers meeting I asked our officers how old they were when they joined. The youngest answer was 52. I was 61 and most were over that. Bingo. Now for fixing that. It was suggested to me to have functions on the weekend for young families with things for their kids. Good idea? What do you think. We are taking a look at this and will need your help with suggestions. Magic and puppet shows etc. We will form a committee and I need your input. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for your suggestions or getting involved. Jake

In an effort to pass the torch to the next generation of Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Media VFW Post 3460 is offering to sponsor the Post’s first year membership dues for veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
The Post is excited to connect with eligible veterans and foster comradeship and community with those who have served in our hometown. The Media VFW Post helps veterans and their families in need, honor those that gave their all, and serve our community in Media.
Post 3460, right off of State Street in Media, is a place for veterans to serve, connect, and relax. As our Greatest Generation Veterans passes, the Media Post looks to the future to fill their ranks. The Media VFW works actively to carry on the legacy of those servicemen and women who were proud to have served. The Post Honor Guard, one of the few left in Delaware County, is very active and currently looking for new members.
Thanks to Home Depot, The Media VFW 3460 Post Canteen and Barlow Hall were recently renovated and hall rentals are popular. The Post’s smoke-free Canteen and free game room is open seven days a week for vets, their friends and family, to socialize in a fun atmosphere. Free Concerts, Bar Bingo, Karaoke and Open Mic are popular, and can be followed on Facebook.
