Help Whenever You Can

Keep in mind any time you can come the Post needs you. If you can come at any time let the commander know. Some of the gaps may be filled by moving volunteers around, but we will still be understaffed or spread thin during the above times.

Morning Shift Meeting Time

For those on the 0800-1000 shift, especially our first day Saturday, May 4th, we will meet at the Kentucky Fried Chicken inside Walmart at about 0730.
