Information required for application is the nearest relative, contact person for emergencies, a list of medications, and a copy of discharge. You can also have a family member go as a guardian.

A E D Fund Raiser
We have a drive on to raise funds to purchase an Automated External Defibrillator (A.E.D.) for the Post Hall. These items aren't cheap so we are asking for your help of a donation of any size. This may save a life and wouldn't you feel great knowing you help purchased one for the Post Hall.
We are as of December 10 over the $600 mark toward our purchase of a A.E.D. We like to thank those who have supported us so far in this task and goal for a A.E.D. for the hall. We still have a long way to go to reach a purchase price of $1500.
