Our VFW Post recently pasrticipated in the Marine Junior ROTC Program at Allen High School.
The Post awarded awards in three categories.
  1. Community Service Certificates and Letters of Appreciation to the eight cadets that  assisted the Post in it's annual Thanksgiving Food Drive in support of the Allen Community Outreach.  The collection effort netted over $6600.00 in food and gift cards.
  2. National VFW Certificates and Medals to six cadets who have demonstrated outstanding leadership qualities.
  3. The First Annual Armistice Memorial Post 2195 Scholarship.  This scholarship for $1000.00 is sent to the University in the name of the student to assist in defraying expenses there.



 Our Color Guard will participate in the Fairview Tree Lighting event on Thursday, November 29th at Fairview City Hall.
 We will present the Colors at the beginning of the program.
The program will start at 6:30 pm. Following the flag presentation and national anthem their will be an invocation and then the town manager will welcome everyone and introduce the Mayor who will talk briefly and light the tree. (the Post will be recognized during the welcome)

There will be children's choirs and dance groups performing as well as crafts, a bounce house, cookies, hot chocolate and Mrs. Clause and a couple of friends.
The event will end at 8:30 pm.
We can park in the Town Hall parking lot or in the Fairview Town Center parking lots. We will meet at the front doors on the West side of city hall at 6:00 pm. This will give us time to see the layout and get set up. I need to know how many of you will be able to attend. If you have any questions call me on my cell 972-529-8504.
