American Legion Oxnard Post 48 is on the move!

By Joe Reyes

The post is on the move—  literally.

It’s my sad duty to report that after three years at the Auto Center Drive location, we have  to   vacate this facility. Our last day here will be on July 31st, so we have a month to clear out.  However, the good news is that as of July 1st  we will start to transition to a new place to continue meetings and conduct our business.

The Veterans of Foreign Wars, Wallace Chaffee All American Post 1679 Ventura, has graciously opened their doors to Post 48. The VFW is located at 3801 Market Street in Ventura, two blocks west of Callens Road. VFW Commander Corey McKinney stated that

the VFW membership voted in favor of sharing their spaces with Post 48—at no cost. We look forward to sharing many great things with our friends at the VFW Post 1679.

I thank and commend the dedicated Post 48 members who have steadfastly gone out of their way to conduct fundraisers and supported the many post events that were held—you’re the best.

Coincidentally, the move to a new “home” begins with the start of the American Legion’s 2017-2018 cycle, with new members joining the Post Staff. We welcome you, and with all of our support, bid you a terrific year in achieving many great accomplishments.

For GOD and Country
