Thanks For The Great Job!

On behalf of all of my fellow Post Comrades, we would like to send out a huge thank you to all of our Auxiliary Members and Volunteers for the fabulous job you all did  to make our Men's and Women's restroom renovations  happen.  All of the materials and labor that was provided for these much needed renovations is definitely first class and is very much appreciated!  This project is just another example of what we can accomplish at our Post when we all work together and strive to continue our efforts to make The Post on the Coast the best that it can be…none better!

In the spirit of comradeship,

Buddy Gillam
