Message from the Post 12190 Post Commander Matthew Andrews:

New Post Building Opening date change
The grand opening of the new Post building is being moved from November 9th to Saturday January 11, 2020 at 10:00AM. This is due to construction delays which have occurred and are beyond our control. There is no need to rush. We want to ensure construction is completed, the bugs are worked out, and the Post is furnished and decorated for the opening ceremony. The building will be open for our own use well before January.
Voice of Democracy / Patriots Pen / Teacher of the Year- October 31st Deadline
I know many of you have children and grandchildren. Here’s an opportunity for them to make some money. 
 
Each year the VFW holds its two national essay contests- Voice of Democracy for High School students and Patriots Pen for middle school students. This year’s theme for both is “What Makes America Great”. The Voice of Democracy national first place winner will receive a $30,000 college scholarship. The Patriots Pen national winner will receive $5,000 and a all expense paid trip to Washington D.C. You can read all about these at the link below. 
 
The VFW Teacher of the Year award recognizes outstanding educators who commit themselves to teaching Americanism and Patriotism to their students. The link below has all the information about this award.

In order to become an All-State Post we must submit nominations for these three awards. Recognizing the outstanding students and teachers among us is the priority. But being All State reflects highly on our organization. And we are going to be an All State Post. The deadline for submissions is midnight on October 31st. All submissions need to be sent to Comrade Christi Hopkins-Minor at  hiaht2@aol.com

On September 11,2019 Hampton Inn and Suites by Hilton at 3028 B Washington Road in Augusta held its 3rd Annual Military and First Responders Appreciation Day Luncheon. It was complimentary for all active and retired military and first responders. VFW Post 12190 was given the opportunity to set up a table to inform Combat Veterans who attended about the new VFW post in Evans. The event was a very special luncheon and the Hampton Inn did an outstanding job. The lunch was 1st class with delicious food, wonderful desserts to include 2 large decorated cakes. People who attended were greeted at the door by key individuals from Hampton Inn and they did everything they could to make the luncheon enjoyable. VFW Post 12190 would personally like to thank the personnel who organized the event and worked hard to make it a great day. We would also like to thank the management of Hampton Inn for letting our post set up a table for the event.
