It is with great sadness that I report the passing of Past National Commander, Past Department Commander and Quartermaster John Francis Gwizdak. The obituary listing the services is attached. Please keep the entire Gwizdak family in your thoughts and prayers.
Hey guys. I am attaching the flier for this year's Military Appreciation Day at the ECHS football game on 29.October at 7:30 pm. If supportable, please send me a list of names who are interested. The list should help them get through the gate faster. I will put the names into a roster as I receive them. The first 50 names I get will be free admission. As the flier indicates, all other veterans will get 50 percent off along with 1 guest.
They DO NOT need to be on the list but they should have the items listed in the flier to help verify veteran status. The veterans are invited to come down to the field as the team enters at the start of the game. We will meet down by the front of the field house at 715.
Please help me ensure the widest distribution. I would like to have any names by COB 28 October. I can be reached at cell 678 458 6044 or by email. Maj Pete Merrill, East Coweta High School JROTC
If you would rather send you names to me at email@example.com, I'll collect them and forward them to Maj Merrill.

I received this information from the Red Cross in Coweta County asking community members for support. His request is listed below as well as three attachments with specifics of their needs.
My name is Steve Dantzler and I am a volunteer recruiter with the American Red Cross. I was hoping that I could get your assistance in spreading the word within your organization about some of the volunteer needs we have in Coweta County and the surrounding areas. We are always looking for leaders in our communities to help us get the word out. I am attaching some informative fliers, please feel free to distribute them throughout your organization. I am available for presentations should you need more information about volunteering. Thank you in advance for your assistance and I look forward to working with you in the future.
