Hope everyone is doing well as summer is coming to a close. I would like to thank our Cabana staff and volunteers for making this another successful year! YOU FOLKS ARE AWESOME! Our post continues to keep moving forward and for that I am thankful. We have multiple events scheduled for the month ahead and we are always looking for Volunteers to help out, from Ham Shoots to just basic facility clean ups. We sure could use the help. Also be sure to keep your dinner plans open and stop in and support the LOV-S on the 25th for their FISH FRY DINNER. With that I wish everyone a Happy & Safe September.

God Bless America, The American Service Member, and our very own Post 7570 Family!

Jeremy (ANDY) Anderson, Quartermaster
