Change in Date of District 20 Awards Program

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.
This year we have two Teachers who will be going forward to Department.
The K-5th grade Teacher is Michele Guyer who teaches at Scobee Elementary School sponsored by VFW Post 7108.
The High School Teacher is SFC Wayne Harper U.S.Army ret. who teaches ROTC at Karen Wagner High School Sponsored by VFW Post 8541
Thank you to all the VFW Post and Auxiliaries that participated in this contest.
