Commander’s Comments:

May is an extremely busy time at the post. The weather is transitioning, and post activities are lining up. Memorial Day is fast approaching, and we will have our schedule of events posted soon, be on the lookout. We ask that all post members volunteer and participate as much as possible. - As many have noticed, the post membership has grown considerably and space is limited both inside and outside, especially with parking. Mandatory cooperation is necessary to accommodate everyone. Be mindful of caution tape, signs and placards being used to ensure proper space for events. Every effort has been made in the past and present to accommodate everyone but not everyone will be happy. Please ensure that you park within the established yellow lines, stay off yellow shaded areas around the building. There are rules in place, and they will be adhered to with or without compensation. Parking is not open to individual interpretation as this mindset interferes with the flow of established guidelines. - The patio now has an awning that retracts from the building. Please do not touch or pull on the awning! If there is an issue, please make bar staff aware. Opening and closing will be done by the staff only. Enjoy the awning! - We look forward to a safe busy summer at the post.

Once again, your cooperation is required and appreciated going forward. Erich Pfleaidermahnn, Commander
