SAME Kittyhawk Post President’s Winter 2019/2020 Message

President's Message

17 December 2019


Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays from the SAME Kittyhawk Post! Our post continues to be incredible as we serve our members and our community. We had a wonderful turn out for our annual Christmas party which included fun raffle prizes, delicious refreshments, networking and fellowship, and a visit from Santa Claus! At the meeting, I recalled to the revelers our outstanding 2019 activities.


Since my September update, we have been busy working on our first Cleveland Field Chapter meeting to be held in January. The post has a super core group of members leading that effort. Stay tuned on our website and social media for details.


In addition to our efforts serving the Cleveland region, the post has been active close to home in the Dayton area. In September, we held our board meeting at Crayons to Classrooms and provided a donation towards their efforts to provide school supplies to children affected by the Memorial Day tornadoes. Later that month, we held an excellent hard hat tour of the Dayton Arcade redevelopment. BOO! In October, our young members hosted a fun Halloween themed trivia night. That month, we recognized 59 post members with service pins-including one member who has been a SAME member for 45 years.


Thank you all for your participation, friendship, and involvement in post activities in 2019. I look forward to more awesome activities as we RUN to 2020-SAME’s 100 year anniversary. Remember our service members serving away from their families this holiday season. We are grateful for their service. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you and your family – and I wish all of you an excellent and prosperous New Year.


I am here to serve you so you can serve others.
