Because August was a dark month for Post meetings, we did very little, except travel our own paths, although there were a few planning meetings for the future.
September was also a very slow, but we did have our September meeting, and our regular Breakfast meeting. Our high light was a SAMS membership booth at the Mesa Market Place. We did not get any new members, but had an excellent time talking, and meeting other Veteran Organization members, and shoppers.
We were invited to participate in the Goldwater High School’s annual parade for homecoming. Although it isn’t an actual veterans program, we enjoyed it and met a lot of great young people. The best event we did was performing our Remembrance Table for the “Semper Fi Marines Group”. They were very appreciative of our attendance, and impressed by our Table. We got to enjoy a meal, and raffle they were having. Our guys won hats, and a picture of the Mt Suribachi Flag Raising, on Iwo Jima. All pictures were signed by the three Marines in attendance that fought on Iwo Jima. That alone was worth the time.
In November, we were at Garden Lakes Elementary School for their annual Veterans Appreciation Day, and were again asked to do our Remembrance Table, and flag fold. It is really amazing to see how the students pay attention, and the questions they have afterwards really show an interest in our veterans. The Post also did the same program for the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) at their luncheon meeting in Phoenix. They too, were really interested in our program. On the 12th we presented the colors at The Golden Corral Restaurant in Surprise. We were compensated with a free dinner, as were all veterans on that date at all Golden Corral restaurants in Phoenix.
