Pearl Harbor Day
The Post, Auxiliary, and guests really remembered Pearl Harbor Day this year. We started off by lowering the flags of course. We played an assortment of VCR tapes nearly all day in the Canteen and at 6:00 p.m. the social hour preceded the formal program which began at 7:00 p.m. We had an invocation, the VFW Suggested speech for Pearl Harbor Day, a wonderful dinner and then the Mega-Bucks Raffle and Party. We drew seven prizes totaling $800.00. Mike Galvin was our first prize winner. Ray Williams won second place.
The kids really decked the halls at our tree trimming party. You can find all of the pictures here.
