POST 1 AMVETS
June was a good for education grants! Post 1 awarded a $ 500.00 education grant each to Biddeford High School Seniors Erica LeLand and Matthew Perkins. In addition, the Department of Maine AMVETS Past Department Commanders’ $ 500.00 education grant was awarded to Biddeford High School Senior Gavin Power, nephew of Son of AMVETS Squadron 1 member Guy Lamontagne (sponsor) and his wife, Terri, a member of ANVETS Post 1 Ladies Auxiliary
It’s officially summer! What else that’s also official – not only did Post 1 sell the most 2017 calendar books – post 1 calendar book winners (24 of them) shared $ 1, 440.00 more money than any other AMVETS post in Maine. This now has been 2 years in a row. Let’s make 2018 a “three-peat”! Our post bartenders will have the calendar books for sale Sunday, October 1st. If you are a snow bird and will be gone south before October, Gene Foster will have some 2018 books for the early birds.
Even though it’s summer, Friday nights at Post 1 continue to be very popular with horseshoes, cards, BBQ, and fun for all.
Looking ahead this month the Department Executive Committee meeting is Sunday, July 9th AMVETS Post 6 in New Gloucester. If you’d like to attend 2018 convention with a paid-in-full room, you can qualify by attending 3 D.E.C. meetings before next June.
Our post meeting this month is Sunday, 16 July at 9:00 am. We have a few important decisions to discuss and vote on. Don’t miss out, this is your post and these are your meetings.
