As many of you know our very old AC/Heater units on the roof have started failing and the prognoses is they will not last the summer. We are hoping to have two new units installed soon for $10,000 but do not have enough money in our accounts. Have you considered a tax-deductable charitable contribution to our Post? Or another option is to lend the Post some money at a 2% rate just approved by the membership at the last meeting. This could be at a amortized return over a 2-3 year term. 2% may not sound great but it’s probably a lot better than you are getting now from your bank!
Any support would be greatly appreciated. Contact Tom the Quartermaster or me if you can help.
Come join us on Sunday May 20th at 12:30 PM for a real FREE Lunch and find out about getting your FREE Benefits from the VA. Don’t miss it!
