Welcome to VFW Harbour-Record Post 2266 Website
Brothers and sisters
June and July have been busy months, Dept. of California VFW conference Riverside, National VFW conference in St Louis, and the start of vacations. I am reaching out to you to drop by the post. The inside and outside of the post have changed.
Please support the weekly lunches, Thursday tacos, and our Friday night dinners. If you have an hour or two to reconnect with other post members, or are looking for opportunities to be active in our Post come in. Sept. and Oct. offer a number of activities sponsored by our post, so please plan to come by share stories, relax, and have a great time. Wednesday night we have a dart tournament, Saturday after the General meeting a Texas holdem tournament, and Ships captain and crew on Sunday. Please bring all suggestions for any fund raisers to your Post Officers; to succeed we need the help of all our members. Copies of the post calendar will be at the canteen throughout the month. Have a great day!!

First and foremost, I would like to say a great huge THANK YOU!!! To Sharon Spellman from our Ladies Aux, and her husband Ron for repainting and restoring the Ladies restroom. It looks amazing and really needed that facelift. I would also like to thank Gary Quackenbush for all that he does at the post. He is a tremendous help whenever asked to do anything.
To all PHC members I send you all my sincere thanks for your help and guidance in the continuing efforts to the beautification of our post. As we all know, we have an old building and it needs a lot of work to keep it up.
As your PHC, we are doing our best to get these things done and bring money into the post as well. You will start to see more changes coming about very soon. If you have any time that you would like to donate to the PHC, we can always use an extra hand, as there are only 4 of us and any assistance is grateful and appreciated.
Thanks again to all my comrades.
