In January, Post 295 had the poorest moth for Community Service since I took over the reporting duties. There was no Color Guard Activity and no Charitable Gaming Donations reported for this month. Also due to poor weather there was no Personal Needs Distribution or Bingo at the Hastings Veterans’ Home this month. In spite of these setbacks 10 people volunteered 58 hours traveling 325 miles at their own expense. Donations this month totaled $145.50
HIGHLIGHTS FROM THIS MONTH’S REPORT:
POST, AUXILIARY MEMBERS AND THEIR FAMILIES
*Service Officer visited 3 members who were recovering from recent hospitalizations. 2 of these members were temporarily in nursing Homes for rehabilitation. One was at Home. *Auxiliary member provided rides for co-worker
CHILDREN AND YOUTH
