ALL HANDS ON DECK SATURDAY, AUG 12!!!!

The House Committee is spearheading the renovation and beautification of our historic post clubhouse in anticipation of our new theater opening late this year and 100th anniversary in 2019.

We need your help. It is time to purge all non-essential items that have been warehoused here for nearly a century, and then clean those areas from 90 years of dust and dirt. And maybe get first dibs on deals on some interesting old stuff!

We will be staging a lot of items out on the front steps the afternoon before (Friday, August 11th). Saturday morning will be a big clean-out of all of the things that are getting trashed, that aren't worth selling in the yard sale.  

As always, snacks, lunch and beverages will be provided.

To volunteer, CLICK HERE to register!


CELEBRATION OF LIFE

Randall Otto Kahn (4/14/1948 - 7/18/2017) R.I.P.

Randall Otto Kahn (4/14/1948 - 7/18/2017) R.I.P.

A celebration of life will be held for Randy Kahn at Post 43 on Sunday, August 13, 2017 at noon

Post 43 Judge Advocate, Past Executive Committee Member, and a dear friend, Randy passed on to "Post Everlasting" July 18, 2017.  Randy was a lion of the post who lent his vast experience in a career in business, banking, and even acting to the stewardship of this post and especially the theater renovation project, in which he was an instrumental force. Randy was a kind, thoughtful patriot and good friend to veterans and Legionnaires. His contributions to the Hollywood Post are innumerable. He will be missed not only for his leadership and counsel, but especially for his friendship.  Please RSVP if you plan to attend, so we may plan to have enough refreshments.
