Welcome to VFW District 20’s Homepage
Comrades and Sisters: I was informed today by Commander John Shipley of the VFW Post 6970 in Poteet, and who will be the incoming District 20 Commander, that the District will not be able to have our District 20 Convention on May 5, 2018. He was informed that another group has a long standing contract to have a meeting every Year on May 5 at that Post. The meeting was not recorded in his book and it was just brought to his attention. He tried to get the other party to move their function but they would not do so.
Since the District was already pushing the last possible date to have our convention, the following decision was made.
We will be having our District 20 convention on Sunday May 6, 2018 at VFW Post 6970 in Poteet. The Start Time will be 1:00 pm. The uniform for the event will be VFW Formal. Blue Jacket and tie, with gray pants for VFW Members or an optional gray skirt for women VFW members. Auxiliary members will wear their Formal meeting attire.
Comrades and Sisters;
Our District 20 Picnic will be on March 17, 2018 and it is fast approaching.
In the past, we have had several Post’s submit a donation to the District
to help offset the cost for this event.
Donations should be sent to our District Quartermaster Carlos Vela,
or brought to the planning meeting when it is set up.
Our Picnic chairman, Jose Rodriguez will be setting up a meeting in the near future so we can complete the planing for this event and individuals wanting input for the picnic are welcome to attend.
Our event this year will be at Comanche Park the same as last year.
The start time will be 12:00 noon and end at 18:00 hours (6:00 pm).
The District will be providing the food.
The Auxiliary will be selling soda, water, and desert.
They will also have raffle for their cakes and be conducting a 50/50.
The District will have a beer booth and tickets will be sold to purchase beer.
