HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL
Now we begin another year of service to our Community, State and Nation. We have much to be thankful for and much to do during the coming year. We will be continuing our service to the veteran’s at Paramus Veteran’s Home through the monthly Hospital Parties, sending delegates to the American Legion Boy’s State program, providing scholarships to Fair Lawn High School students and providing many other services to veterans, our members and the community. Contact your friends, neighbors and acquaintances who are veterans and invite them to join our post. Please attend our regular meetings, become involved and enjoy the comradeship of your fellow veterans.
Long time member George Voulgaris is recovering from lung surgery and complications. We wish you a speedy recovery
