Post Awards 2007 - 2008

Congratulations members: Thanks to your support and hard work, the post has had a banner year. We have increased our membership, improved our bottom line, continued our upgrade of the Post home and grounds, and localized our community out-reach and support efforts to name a few.


To those on the outside it may appear that all of our efforts are centered on the clubhouse and/or social quarters, and to be truthful, that portion of our post is the most visible to our members and by its nature commands a great deal of attention. It is our biggest source of revenue and the revenue it produces allows us to do the great things we have done and continue to do with our donations to support our veterans and their families.



The following awards were presented to Post 162 at the
17th District Conference held on June 3, 2007, for 2006 and 2007 calendar year, in the medium post (200-499) category:
