Hello to all of our followers! We wanted to send a notice out to you all to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel our golf outing this year. It was not a decision that came easy but in the end it was determined that we should exercise an abundance of caution to protect our members, volunteers, and our amazing supporters. We knew going in that this would be at best a modified version of events past and want to make sure that we provide a great experience for all. So we are taking the year to regroup and plan for next year to make it the memorable event it's been known to be.
That being said this will cause a fair amount of financial strain on the post as a whole. We are asking our community to consider making a donation and attached you will find a letter from our post commander Al Jaquet to that effect. If you could take a minute to read it and if possible help support our mission it would be greatly appreciated.
We will plan on bringing back the golf outing in 2021 as strong as ever and hope to see you all there!
Thanks!

Another memorial day service that is being held

Quick update for anyone planning on joining for the Memorial Day services, the time has been updated to 0930 at the Post. We have add Prince of Peace Memorial to the list of observances and will make that our first stop. We still need some member volunteers so if you can commit please call Al and let him know to expect you.

Happy Friday everyone! We wanted to put out another update on where we are as a post in dealing with the Covid-19 pandemic.
Yesterday we held a socially distant officers meeting in the parking lot of the post to go over a few things and here are some of the takeaways to share:

The Poppy Sales Fundraiser for Spring was cancelled. We just don't feel we are there yet that it makes good sense to put our volunteers out in the public. We are hopeful that we can still have our fall event but will make that decision as we get closer.

Memorial day services - we are going to try to make this happen assuming we can do so safely. What that means: We won't be attending the church service that morning as usual and instead will focus on the cemeteries. For any volunteers interested please meet at the post on Monday May 25 at 10am. The plan is to have the groups limited to 10 people and each driving separately to and from the sites.

Golf Outing - we are exploring our options on this and are looking into a modified event. More details to come on how we can execute this and still make it a fun memorable event.

At this point if we do nothing else the post will suffer a financial loss this year, but we should be able to weather that storm. (barring any unforeseen events). We have had a few anonymous donations come in and it is so appreciated that during a time like this there are still people willing to help keep us afloat. It is certainly our plan to stay around and be a fixture in the Bellevue area for years to come.

We miss all of our membership and community members, we can't wait to see you all again soon!

Hi everyone, we wanted to share some updates on how we as a post will be handling the changing landscape of the Covid-19 pandemic.

First and foremost the safety and health of our members and community is our number one priority. As such our normally scheduled post meetings and auxiliary meetings are being cancelled for time being. We will take this on a month to month basis and will advise our members when we feel it is safe to resume normal operations.

Our upcoming Dinner Dance fundraiser will also be cancelled pending reschedule. I know when this all clears out we will need some social interaction and hope to be able to provide that opportunity. We will keep you all posted.

At this time our Golf Outing is still on for this August, should that need to change we will make that notice.

We at Vfw Post 9677 wish all our members, auxiliary, and community members good health and to stay safe as we take on this fight.

A big thanks to everyone that came out yesterday for the meat raffle! We had a great turnout and a better time! We had support from other vet organizations as well, I saw VFW Green Bay, WI - Post 2037 Noble-Straubel, Combat Veterans Motorcycle Association WI 45-3, and the VVA to name a few. Great to see our vet community coming together to help each other out! Thanks to Jean Vandenlanenberg for donating the Jake Kumerow authographed packers ball for our raffle. And of course a BIG thanks to Jeff and the staff at Pearly Gates Bar for hosting us and helping make this a success! Think we just might do it again!

Borrowed from a Nike Hercules fb group: I am an United States Army Veteran. To understand a Military Veteran you must know: We left home as teenagers or in our early twenties for an unknown adventure. We loved our country enough to defend it and protect it with our own lives. We said goodbye to friends and family and everything we knew. We learned the basics and then we scattered in the wind to the far corners of the Earth. We found new friends and new family. We became brothers and sisters regardless of color, race or creed. We had plenty of good times, and plenty of bad times. We didn’t get enough sleep. We smoked and drank too much. We picked up both good and bad habits. We worked hard and played harder. We didn’t earn a great wage. We experienced the happiness of mail call and the sadness of missing important events. We didn’t know when, or even if, we were ever going to see home again. We grew up fast, and yet somehow, we never grew up at all. We fought for our freedom, as well as the freedom of others. Some of us saw actual combat, and some of us didn’t. Some of us saw the world, and some of us didn’t. Some of us dealt with physical warfare, most of us dealt with psychological warfare. We have seen and experienced and dealt with things that we can’t fully describe or explain, as not all of our sacrifices were physical. We participated in time honored ceremonies and rituals with each other, strengthening our bonds and camaraderie. We counted on each other to get our job done and sometimes to survive it at all. We have dealt with victory and tragedy. We have celebrated and mourned. We lost a few along the way. When our adventure was over, some of us went back home, some of us started somewhere new and some of us never came home at all. We have told amazing and hilarious stories of our exploits and adventures. We share an unspoken bond with each other, that most people don’t experience, and few will understand. We speak highly of our own branch of service, and poke fun at the other branches. We know however, that, if needed, we will be there for our brothers and sisters and stand together as one, in a heartbeat. Being a Veteran is something that had to be earned, and it can never be taken away. It has no monetary value, but at the same time it is a priceless gift. People see a Veteran and they thank them for their service. When we see each other, we give that little upwards head nod, or a slight smile, knowing that we have shared and experienced things that most people have not. So, from myself to the rest of the veterans out there, I commend and thank you for all that you have done and sacrificed for your country. Try to remember the good times and make peace with the bad times. Share your stories. But most importantly, stand tall and proud, for you have earned the right to be called a Veteran. I’m a VETERAN! I WOULD DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN AND AGAIN!
