Notes from the Commander
Spring is here and we are busy on a variety of fronts.
First and foremost, an update on our building plans. On Wednesday, March 12, 2014, in conjunction with the visit of the AL National Commander Daniel Dellinger of Virginia, we held a groundbreaking ceremony at Wilson Filed, home of the new post home. Pictures are on our website: www.stahlpost30.org and our Facebook page. I want to thank WDEL and the News-Journal for their positive coverage of the event
We were very lucky to be introduced to Andy DiSabatino, CEO of EDIS by Harold West. Andy was instrumental in helping us with the set-up of the groundbreaking. Andy has very graciously offered to help us with our building. Being one of the top construction managers in the region, they will help us garner bids from different sub-contractors and develop construction schedules. This will take enormous pressure off our shoulders and make the building progress flow very smoothly.
I would also like to thank Frank Claycomb, Ted Christopher, “Mo” Williams and Eli Danucalov for their work doing all the “grunt work” setting up the site for the groundbreaking. Also, thanks to Joe Waegele, our Adjutant, for his work coordinating all parts of the ceremony and acting as Master of Ceremonies.
We had a construction meeting on March 20th with our engineers and architects to finalize our prints so they can be sent out for bids. Also, we sent monies to the state and county to move forward with the permits for the building.
I have been often asked when we will start the building and I have tried to be positive, but seriously, right now there are any number of tasks that have to be completed, most of, I am not yet aware , to get to that point and I will do everything I can to keep the process moving. Keep your collective fingers crossed that we might be starting this fall.
Our baseball team will be starting soon. If there are any young men 15-18 who would like to play for Stahl Post and live basically in the New Castle area, call the post and leave their name and someone will contact them.
Congratulations to Sylvia Abney of Philadelphia, who won the cruise to Bermuda with the “Stahl Post Cruisers.” The ticket was sold by Bridgett Biliski, one of our top sellers for all our fundraisers. Bridgett is second only to Ted Christopher in sales. Ted can always coerce a $10 bill out of our friends at St. Anthony’s and St. Gabe’s Italian Social clubs for our fundraisers. Thanks to him for his work in these endeavors.
The Memorial Day weekend is fast approaching. As is our practice, Stahl Post will distribute flags for veteran’s graves at Gracelawn cemetery on May 24-25,10am until 2pm. Also, on the traditional Memorial Day on May 30, Stahl will have a luncheon after the Bridge ceremony. All are welcome at both events.
The flyer in the newsletter is from WU saluting our WWII vets at two events, one in New Castle and one in Georgetown. Please be advised that all are welcome. Please follow directions on the flyer if you plan to attend.
I know some probably might tire of hearing this, but Stahl Post will not prosper without help from all our members in the post, unit and squadron. There is always something going on that someone might want to become involved. If you have ideas, bring them to the meeting of your group and we can get them instituted. No idea is a bad one.
Remember: We are all in this together
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.
A special thank you to all the auxiliary members for everything they do for the post, members and community. GREAT JOB.
GOD BLESS THE USA AND OUR TROOPS
