American Legion Commander Post 10
Our next big event at Boulder Post 10 will be our annual celebration of Veterans Day on Monday, November 11, 2019. Come join us as we celebrate with a formal program at the Legion’s Reception Hall. The program begins at 11:00 am. I encourage all of our Legion Family members and guests to attend. Please watch the Weekly Blast and the Post bulletin board for details.
Veterans Day, originally Armistice Day, marked the end of World War I. That long and bloody conflict officially ended on November 11, 1918. Since then, November 11th has been the day our nation remembers the many sacrifices war requires. One hundred years ago, the world hoped World War I would be the war to end all wars. In the hundred years since then, veterans know America has needed its citizens to remain vigilant.
As we enter the last two months of 2019, here are a couple reminders:
• Daylight savings time ends on Sunday, November 3rd. You can enjoy an extra hour of sleep if you set your clocks back an hour when you retire on Saturday night, November 2nd; and
• Take the opportunity to vote in the off-year election in early November. There are few issues on this year’s ballot. Remember that for the Boulder County election, you don’t need to visit polling places to vote. Simply mail your completed ballot in early or you can deliver it no later than the fifth of November to have it counted.
At this time, our Senior Vice Commander, Junior Vice Commander, Sergeant-at-Arms, and Historian officer positions are open and can be filled by appointment. If any Legion member is interested in helping lead Post 10 in any of the above positions, please let me know. We need everyone’s support and involvement to keep our Post strong and healthy.
As always, come visit the Post and say “Hello”. This is your Post. Tim Stevens, his staff, and the entertainment committee do an outstanding job of planning events in the Lounge for everyone to enjoy. We need your continuing support and participation to make this a successful year at Post 10.
In the near future, the Post’s septic tank cover, that’s been an eyesore for these many months, will be replaced by something functional and beautiful. Tim Stevens has worked with our Post 10 family to design a landscaped area surrounding the septic tank that will both protect the area from harm and inspire visitors and members. When it’s finished, please come talk with us about it and let us know what you think.
Finally, as we approach the end of 2019, remember those currently serving in the armed forces who will be far from their loved ones this holiday season. Pray that they will soon return home unharmed.
For God and Country,
—Don Eldhart, Commander
Unit 10 Auxiliary President

Notes from the Lounge:
Holy cow. Where has the time gone? The holidays are just around the corner.
We have some fun events coming up for the holidays at the Club, and as always, we could use the help of our members to get involved to keep the ball rolling and keep our Club active and enjoyable for us all. Our events seem to fall on the shoulders of the same group of volunteers. It is really time for the membership of the Post to help out and get involved with some of the events and spread the workload. Many hands make for less work, so come on out and get involved! It is your Post, too.
Take some time to get to know your fellow members and help us keep our Post alive and well. Feel free to come and volunteer for a breakfast or dinner—or even a lunch you would like to share.
We would like to welcome our new bartender Kyra to the Club. Come on out and say hi.
Keep your eye on the board at the Club and your newsletter for more details on upcoming events.
From all of us behind the bar, thanks for your support.
— Tim, Pam, Ann, Sandy, Yvonne, Julie, Jen and Kyra
