POST COMMANDER'S MESSAGE

Greetings,


We have been contacted by a Pharmacist who would like to make a presentation at our 14 October meeting on medical cannabis as he has many patients who are also veterans. If you are interested in hearing this presentation please respond below. He will supply food from Mission BBQ so a head count is needed.


Cliff Bergstresser has been sworn in as District 8's 2nd Vice Commander. District 8, encompasses all of Frederick and Howard Counties, Sykesville and the top half of Montgomery County.


I have assumed the duties of Region 4, Vice Commander, The Ferocious Four! Region 4 stretches from Sykesville in the east and Oakland, MD in the west.


CANCELLED by the City of Gaithersburg. Our next community event will be the Gaithersburg Octoberfest, Sunday, October 10th in the Kentlands.


We were forced to postpone the Annual Golf Tournament due to lack of adequate time to coordinate prizes and golfers.


We encourage as many Legionnaires, Sons and Auxiliary to attend. Changes to meeting locations will be posted on www.post295.org.


Stay Safe, get vaccinated and see you soon!
