Welcome to the End of 2015

(December 27, 2015) Merry Christmas and Happy New Year Post 5040 members! Not much to report here other than we've kept the Post going and things have been clicking along.

As some of the local members may have seen in the newspaper, our beloved VFW Post 5040 has been sold. Yes, its true and its a good thing.

As a VFW Post, we didn't have the funds to do what our VFW goals stated we should be doing. To a certain extent we did, but our lack of participation from members and aging membership in general, the Post wasn't what it was 50 years ago. Times change, membership changes, and a new direction was needed.

This is our turning point; a time of renewal for the Post and the opportunity to rightsize the Post home to something more manageable. If any of you have questions about this whole transaction, let us know. As more information becomes available on what our plans are for the Post, I'll update them here.

Also, anyone interested in taking over this website? Yes, it's completely voluntary, but you can enhance/change/modify as you like. It's been pretty static over the last several years, and a new look might do this site good. Let me know.

Yours in Comradeship (and Blue Skies ),
