Post 156's monthly luncheon at Mission BBQ and assisted by Maryrose, was dedicated to our 1st Vice Commander Vance Blakely, who is moving to Pensacola, FL this month. Vance's role as 1st Vice will be hard to fill so the new 1st Vice John Spain will have an equally daunting task but has spent considerable time getting the “How To” instructions from Vance. Post 156 wishes Vance well on his move and is looking forward to his next visit set for this July 4th holiday where they will be part of the Independence Day Parade in Clarksville, MD. (6/11/21)
