February 27, 2016:  Tom Troy (left) and Terry Meehan were assisted by Don Northcutt (not pictured), all from VFW Post 5412.  Post 5412 (Tom) loaned me the use of their table covering and VFW table-banner, which combined with some locally-produced posters and table displays made for a professional and attractive appearance.

 Our VFW team provided information brochures and explanations to dozens of Scouters, veterans and non-Veterans alike.  Many were unaware of the SOY and Wood Badge scholarships, and even fewer aware of the Patriot's Pen and Voice of Democracy.   We encouraged interested parties to begin planning to enter contests next year and distributed the most recent brochures from National to assist in that planning.  

Tom and Don had brought VFW applications as well and about a half-dozen persons expressed interest in joining and took away contact information on their respective local Posts.  They pitched the value of VFW membership and two new members were signed up on the spot by the team.
