Comrades and Sisters:

I have attached the Schedule for the Memorial Service and Awards program.
District 20 Chaplain Jack Steel will be in charge of the Memorial Service.
He will be Coordinating with District 20 Auxiliary Chaplain Gladys Portalatin.

In the memorial Service there is a section where the Chaplains will list the number of VFW and Auxiliary members from each post that have past away since July 1, 2017 to present. I am asking each Post Commander and Auxiliary President to send this information to Jack Steel phone number 830 709 5768 or send an email flexed4jc@hotmail.com.

The awards Program will follow the memorial service starting around 2:45 pm.

Comrades and Sisters, I have just been informed from our Department Commander, who is also the Post Commander of VFW Post 4815, that it is necessary to change the date of our District 20 Awards program from Saturday January 20, to Sunday afternoon January 21, 2018.

To make this up to us the Post will be providing a lunch, free of charge to those attending.

The Post will open at 1:00 pm Sunday afternoon. Lunch will be served at 1:30 pm and the District 20 Programs will start around 2:00 pm.

We will start with a joint memorial program for our departed members. Then we will follow with the awards. The uniform of the day for VFW members will be Blue Jacket, tie, Gray Slacks and VFW Service cap.

Also at this time I am Naming the winners of the District 20 Teachers contest.
