Treasurers:

July 1 through August 31, 2015 the Department of Oregon is giving back 50 cents per member for percaps.  This means that for this month and next you will only send in $9.50. September 1, 2015 they go back up to $10.00.  Lets HURRY and get this taken care of, 50 cents may not seem like much but once you start adding them all up it can add up quick. There are some awards for getting membership in early so lets try to get as many in as we can now so we can save some money on the percaps, get to 100%+, and get in on some of the awards for being first to 100%.


 

VFW Post/Auxiliary 4248 wanted to show everyone what their Post home looks like. As soon as I can figure out how to get this on with the rest of the pictures that scroll through they will be added to that line up.  If your Auxiliary would like to have photos on the web site please send them to orauxweb@outlook.com as an attachment and I will be more than happy to get them on the website.  Thank you so much VFW Post/Auxiliary 4248 for sharing this really cool picture of your building.  Chris, website editorVFW Post 4248
