PREPRESENTING THE COLORS
Post 532 very much appreciates your visiting our humble Post in the Western North Carolina mountains. We are aware of the very busy schedule for a Department Commander. Your time is valuable, especially to us, for installation of our coming year officers. Plus your being accompanied by your lovely wife is a special privilege, especially for our Auxiliary, and the installation of their officers. It is always a pleasure seeing you and we want to thank you for being so supportive of our Post. It is nice to know that the Department Commander knows where Hayesville is. 😊
Best wishes for a successful year as Commander of the Department of North Carolina.
