Congratulations to Lola Higginbotham for taking 2nd place in the Patriots Pens Essay Contest. Lola was sponsored by Post 5456 – Elberton.
We had a great Mid-Winter Conference in Macon this weekend. Sorry to those that were unable to make it this time. I ask that you start making plans to attend the 15 – 18 June 2017 Conference and Convention. That weekend we will be electing our new State Officers and will have the installation of all State, District and Auxiliary Officers.
Our next District Meeting and Convention will be held on 7 May 2017 – Cumming Post 9143 will host the VFW and Auxiliary Meeting and will start at 1000 hours. Come Join Us…
I’m here 24-7-365 to assist in any capacity for District 2. This year we will focus on locating our lost Comrades that may have dropped from our rosters, assist those who may be financially unable to commit to their annual dues and to gather phone numbers and personally call ALL Comrades that have missed the last meeting. I look forward in meeting with you and your elected officers in the very near future.
