Attending the 2014 VFW National Convention in St. Louis from John Lyon Post were (l to r) Brendan Gehrke, Ryan Gallucci, J.Gary Wagner, Margo Sheridan, Cathy Graham, Valerie Palacios, and (photographer) C.D. Doc Crouch.

Our first Member of the Month is Steven T. Magnin. Steve answered the call back in the spring for someone to cut the lawn. He has maintained and much improved the lawns around the Post and, with his wife's help, has moved to keep up the gardens as well. A big difference this year in the Post grounds! Steve also made the recent hospital visit, signed up for highway cleanup, and helped with Sunday Brunch. Thanks and congratulations!!!
