 Lloyd’s Koffee Klatch — The name belies what this new activity is all about. This is an event suggested by David Richey. We will open up the Post to any and all veterans for the morning to enjoy coffee, doughnuts, and great comradery. It’s named after Lloyd E. Hutcheson, the same person our Post is named after. The event will start at 9:00 AM and continue until 11:30 AM (or so). David intends to invite vets from across the valley including those active duty people at Gowen Field. Always looking for help, if you would like to join in, or just come for coffee, contact Dave at:
