From Commander Loomis:
The Post 2001 meeting scheduled for Thursday, 13 September, is cancelled.
Hurricane Florence is a big unknown as to if and when it will effect our area. While Thursday evening may only turn out to be rainy and breezy, I choose to err on the side of the safety of the Post members by not having a meeting.
The Loudoun County Emergency Management Coordinator Kevin Johnson said, “While this storm is currently expected to make landfall on the Carolinas’ coasts, we should take this storm seriously. I urge residents not to underestimate the potential impact of Hurricane Florence locally and to take action now to prepare yourself and your families.” The impacts could be more severe because the region already has experienced significant rainfall during the past week.

October 11 is our next scheduled meeting and I'll have information about it out soon. We'll have a change of location and venue for that meeting, and I hope you'll make plans to attend.
For God and Country,
