Post Current NewsNew Members Needed!
Claudia Keller paased today, April 28, 2016. She was a most valued and loved member of this post and will be greatly missed! I personally will miss her smiles, open heart, love, ...and her dinners at the post. Nobody I know had a bigger smile while working hard for our post than she did. Details of her funeral and burial can be found here. After the burial, she will also be honored at our post on May 3rd. Close friends and family are encouraged to attend.
Bill Cambell (William Cambell) has also left us. He passed on April 26th at his home with loved ones near. Your webmater did not know him well but remembers the impact his relatives have had on our post. We will mourn his passing just as we mourn the passing of all the members who have made this post succeed. More information can be found here.
"Skinny" is no longer with us. Gary (Skinny) Simmons died last night, April 22nd, of a massive heart attack. He will obviously be missed by the members of our post family. Even if you didn't know him well, you could hardly have missed seeing him. Yes, that tall guy who actually stood at the bar more often than he sat there. Passionate about sports and life as well as the local community, we will remember him. Remembrance can be found here.
It's time to attend a meeting. On May 10th and 11th the Members and Men's Auxiliary will be electing new officers to serve for the coming year. If you have a candidate or would like to fill an office, now is the time to speak up.
Memorial Day is Coming!
It is time to gear up for Memorial Day and our parade through Lexington. We know we have the participation of the local officials and schools. It is up to us to bring it all home and make it bigger and better than ever. Can we all pitch in with ideas, contacts, and effort to keep this tradition going strong?
We have been invited to start planning for an Independence Day event in Lexington. Anyone interested in volunteering/participating is more than welcome. Let's see if we can add another event to the community sponsored by the Veterans of Foreign Wars! More information will be available on this site and on facebook at Lexington Fun as it becomes available.
New Members Joining!
We would like to welcome the new members joining our post. Please make them feel welcome when they stop by. We know you will!
Do we make a difference?====================================================
We received this letter from the Principal of Central Elementary in Lexington, Ohio. A thank you for our support of their efforts
Did you notice the drop in temperatures lately? Yep, the cold is coming. Fortunately for us that also means that Breakfasts are now available at the post. Come in Saturday and enjoy our famous breakfasts, Omelets, Pancakes, Eggs and Toast, or our Famous Mess. Want to know your order before you get here? OK, here's a menu.
Want to learn about our History?
Al Rinehart gave the post an album from his time, back when. When he was a young Navy man in WWII. Every one of us should check it out. This is the reason we exist. We are a place for veterans to call home. We are a place where veterans don't have to worry about their attitude on a night. We are a place where a veteran can find someone who can listen with a sympathetic ear. Even if that person hasn't been in the exact same situation, they can relate and begin the process, of allowing that veteran to heal, serve, celebrate.
Friday Night is Pizza & Wing Night
Ask Grover about the Kitchen Sink Pizza. New staff, same great taste! We are selling pizzas every Friday evening from 5pm till 7pm. Check out our latest wings menu or pizza menu!
We are also celebrating with free jukebox music and other specials. Check it out and ask.
Let Us Know How You Are!
Hey people! Stop by and say hello. If you haven't been here for a while, we'd like to see your face. Stop by on Friday for a pizza or on Thursday for cornhole. Just let us know you are still with us. We are working hard to make this post better than it has been in a decade. Come check us out and see where you can fit in. Maybe you can even make a difference by helping out somewhere???

On the Lighter Side
Have you heard of The Onion, America's Finest News Source? It is a wonderful source of Satirical News. I just recently discovered a military focused cousin to that site, The Duffle Blog, written by and for veterans and their families. If you need a break or just want a few laughs, check either one out.
Need a Flag?!?!?
Did you know that our post has US Flags for sale? We do! They are 3 Feet by 5 Feet, and cost $25.00. You can arrange to pick one up by calling the post at 419-884-2873.
Never Forget our Purpose. Please keep in mind our family serving overseas at the current time. Even if our family members and friends are home, there are MANY still serving in the line of fire for our freedom. Please remember them all.
