September 11th Day of Service & Remembrance


On Sept 11, 2017, Post 8 Commander Rip Preston held a ceremony to honor and remember all those who lost their lives in the 9/11 attacks.

The ceremony also honored those who volunteered to serve and who have sacrificed in response to those attacks.

After this moving tribute, volunteers set to work cleaning, painting, and repairing Post 8.  

Post 8 sends a great, BIG THANK YOU to every single one of our awesome  & highly appreciated volunteers!


Painting the stairwell. It looks *great* now!! And....getting all that hard to reach dust & dirt!

Project costs partly paid for by a $1,000 grant from the national ALA.   

In the end, we all worked hard....and even managed to have some fun!
