 Welcome to our new brothers and sisters in Arms. The men and women of B Company 1st/145th Armored Infantry of the Ohio National Guard.  Their home Armory is on Green Road a short distance from the VFW Post. The Post 1863 policy is every eligible Active Duty member of the military or National Guard and Reserve will have their annual dues paid for by the VFW Post 1863 as long as they remain on Active Duty or an Active member of the National Guard or Military Reserve. Let's make sure we all make them feel at home as new members of the Post. 

Remember, Solon Home Days is at the end of the month. Friday, July 25th from 5:00 PM to 10:00 PM; Saturday, July 26th from 2:00 PM to 10:00 PM and Sunday, July 27th from 12:30 PM to 7:30 PM. We could use help at the Post's Display location from any members wishing to volunteer of few hours of their time over the weekend. Any member working at least 3 hours during the Home days weekend will be eligible to receive a Cooties Steak Fry ticket, which will be held on Sunday August 17th from 1:30 PM to 5:00 PM. At home days members will be primarily handing out flags to kids and Poppy's to Adults as they collect donations for the VFW Charities and the VFW National Home Orphanage in Eaton Rapids, Michigan. Regular members will also be conducting new a member drive.

The Commander is looking for one or two Social or Veterans Associate members who would like to volunteer to sit on the Post's new House Committee for the year. The House Committee has been created in conjunction with VFW National Guidelines for VFW Posts operating Clubs or Canteens. This Committee and it's members will determine Canteen Policies and procedures. And oversee every aspect of Canteen operations through the year. Anyone interested in serving on this Committee, please contact Commander Tom Bulanda or Post Quartermaster/Adjutant Harry Crawford.
