Monday, April 1, there was no foolin' for membrs of Lee Marts VFW Post 3571 and its Ladies' Auxiliary of Delta; it was a busy work session instead.
After a potluck supper, the post and auxiliary had a brief joint meeting to finalize details of the golf tournament they are sponsoring at Devil's Thumb Golf Course on May 4.
All interested golfers are encouraged to notify Della Ware at 872-3327. A brief memorial service was given for recently deceased comrades and sisters before the post and auxiliary went to their separate meetings.
After the normal business session, plans were made for serving breakfast at the Delta Home, Garden and Recreation Show, and for honoring hometown heroes at a Loyalty Day supper and celebration April 29 at 6 p.m. at the Delta IOOF Lodge #116. A clean-up/fix-up work day is planned April 21 at the post home at 1576 H25 Road in North Delta. The auxiliary will help the Delta Police Department in the volunteer fingerprinting of Garnet Mesa and Lincoln Elementary kindergartners on April 25, and on Memorial Day, a community pancake breakfast will be held at the Delta IOOF.
Elections followed, with David Rowland named commander, Shawn Wright senior vice commander, and Ben Cole junior vice commander. The Ladies Auxiliary elected Caryl Rowland as president, Jennifer Wright as senior vice president, and Della Ware as junior vice president.
All current members, eligible veterans and auxiliary members are encouraged to attend the next meeting May 6 at 6 p.m. at the Delta IOOF Lodge, 864 Highway 92, to get involved in assisting local veterans and active duty military personnel with a variety of community service projects. For more information, call Commander David Rowland or president Caryl Rowland at 314-3838, or post quartermaster Jim Baker or auxiliary secretary Sandy Baker at 874-8172.blog comments powered by Disqus
