The 100th Anniversary dinner went very well. We were honored to have the Commander in Chief attend. His presentation was uplifting and was very entertaining. He presented the Post with a Century Award that will be displayed in the office. The boys Choir provided the entertainment for the event and provided an amazing show. The Commander in Chief presented each of the performers with an US Flag pin.
