FROM THE DESK OF YOUR COMMANDER  

Post Members of Gross-Yaksh

 
         As the news has been addressing the current dilemma on the virus, I ask that all members reach out to each other and please check in weekly with your Commander!  You are my well-being, we will fight through this together and continue to lead the way strategically and carefully.  Please continue to stay vigilant and safeguard yourself the best way possible till this pandemic passes.  I urge you to make our Community Safe by watching out for any neighbors that need some assistance from time to time.  If you are unable, please reach out to your Community Neighborhood Watch Commander to check on certain elderly or anyone who has limited family in their area.  
             
 
    Thank you to all who continue to reach out and say Hello, I'm pleased to hear of your well-being.  
 
     We will be having our Post Meeting on August 11th via Zoom and September 8th we will wait to see if Hart Park Senior Center will be available for us. 
 
     With the upcoming Veterans Events being canceled due to the spread of the Virus and by Local and Government mandates, please be safe wherever you go. 
 
     With that being said, our Post Picnic is rescheduled for next year and our Poppy Days at Miller Park has also been postponed, we will have to check the dates for the 2021 season.  
 
      Please see our newly Elected Junior Vice M. James for Poppies to raise funds for our continued support to Veterans and Supporting Organizations for their upcoming Veteran related activities.
  
                                                   We do more for Veterans 
 
    Once again please reach out via email with any concerns or call me directly to let me know "You're still in this Fight!" at 414-687-7837 or at jlcalderonjr@yah00.com subject: Still in this Fight.
