Ground Breaking is scheduled for March 12, 2014 at Wilson Field. We are asking invited Guest to arive by 10:30 and the Ceremony will start at 11 AM sharp. When completed we will have a Lucheon at the Post Home.
Spring is around the corner and everyone will be able to get outside soon. For those that do not know, Wilmington University’s baseball team uses Wilson Field for its home games every spring. They also do a tremendous job keeping the field in pristine condition all season long. I would like to thank Rich Groff, head groundskeeper, and his crew for their great work all spring and summer long. Check their website for dates of their home games.
Imagine, in the near future, we will be watching baseball from, a heated in the spring and air-conditioned in the summer, new post home. The ground-breaking ceremony for the new post home will be held Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at 11:00am at Wilson Field in conjunction with the visit of the American Legion National Commander Dan Dellinger of Virginia. Please try to attend, but be reminded that the luncheon afterwards, at the post, is open to all but space is limited so please let the post know if you plan to attend. This will help plan seating and amount of food.
Our legion baseball team, reigning state champions and going for our 30th championship, coached by Brian Honeycutt and Bob Anderson, plan another run at the regional tournament in Camden N.J. and World Series in Shelby, North Carolina. This is our most expensive program by far at Stahl Post. To keep our program the best in Delaware, we continually need to generate fund for this program. Please make an effort to support your team by attending a game or by, maybe, helping raise funds.
This summer in on June 7-8, our coaches have planned a weekend of away games in Walkersville and Sykesville Md. There will be a double header on Saturday and one again on Sunday. It would be a nice weekend trip for our members to go and follow our team. More info to follow.
At the February general membership meeting, the membership voted to make Vic Callahan the Chairman of the Board of Managers, taking over the day to day control of the canteen operations. Vic and I are working together to get this done. I will, in essence, become Vic’s back-up when he is unavailable. I know Vic will do a great job and I will be there to answer any questions as we move forward. I know that all our members will give Vic their full support.
I want again to thank all that have participated during my time operating the canteen and I know we will keep moving forward with all our plans for the future.
Remember: We are all in this together.
Hopefully, winter is coming to an end and spring is about to pop-out. Let’s keep our fingers crossed and hope the snow is finally gone.
Bowling for our troops will be held on Saturday, March 8, 2014 at Bowlerama in New Castle. The registration and sign-up forms are in the post, so stop by and pick one up. We ask that the children and grandchildren collect pledges from families and friends. These donations will be for air time for our troops to contact their loved ones at home.
Please bring the pledge forms and money to the bowling alley on saturday. All the children will bowl from 10:00am until noon. Pizza and soda will be provided to all in attendance. The price of the bowling and refreshments will be provided by the post. Deadline for sign-up is Sunday, March 2, 2014.
LET’S SUPPORT OUR TROOPS!!!
The Easter Egg hunt will be held on Saturday April 12, 3014 at Wilson Field. The hunt will start at noon. Remind your children to bring a basket to collect the eggs. There will be a signup sheet at the post for all children and grand-children 10 years old and younger. There will be refreshments for all in attendance. Rain date is Saturday, April 19, 2014. Hope to see everyone at Wilson Field.
