On December 4th we will be hosting a day of Christmas for the local National
Guard and their families. We, will have a kids day from 1:00 – 3:00pm, that day
and it will be open to all National Guard and members of Post 56 children and
grandchildren. There will be movies, face painting, and of course Santa Claus
with a treat for all of the Kids. That evening we will host a dinner for the
Guard members and a guest. For those of you that may not know, next year these
members of our National Guard will be off serving our country at Christmas time,
so we felt that as a Post we wanted to give them a Christmas to remember. The
social hour will be at 6:00 with the dinner being at 7:00.

enjoyable Holiday Season.
